These tests allow the doctor to look at the inner lining of your large intestine using a thin, flexible tube and it’s useful for finding things such as ulcers, polyps, tumors, and areas of inflammation or bleeding. During this procedure, tissue samples can be collected and abnormal growths can be taken out. These tests can also be used to check for cancer or precancerous growths in the colon or rectum.
We know that this test is one of the best ways to screen for colon cancer. It is the single most effective method for early detection.
