Colonoscopy in Reseda
Colonoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic examination completed to evaluate the inner linings of the large intestine. The procedure is completed with a colonoscope, a long, flexible tube equipped with a camera and light. The tube is inserted through the anus and rectum and guided through the colon to collect images, obtain biopsies or tissue samples and remove precancerous growths known as polyps.
Colonoscopies are regarded as the premier method for colon cancer screening. They are recommended for all adults at the age of 50, and every five to ten years thereafter. More frequent colonoscopies are recommended for those with a personal or family history of colon cancer or polyps.
