Look inside colon
You are sedated (very sleepy, but still breathing on your own).
The endoscopist places an instrument through your anus and then passes it into the colon
to carefully exam the colon for polyps, cancer
, etc. If any abnormalities are found a biopsy
may be done. Typically, it is painless - the only bother is cleaning out your bowels beforehand and even that's not so bad.
