In brief: Depends on findings

Flexible sigmoidoscopy looks at lower 1/3 of colon.
Better look is with colonoscopy, which looks at entirety of colon. In general, if abnormality seen on flex sig, colonoscopy is recommended.

In brief: Sigmoidoscope

Then your gastroenterologist will talk with u about the findings & plan for treatment, if any.
Prepare to ask all questions u might have during that appointment. Wish u well.
