Colonoscopy in Sherman Oaks
Colonoscopy is a diagnostic procedure frequently used to detect abnormalities that may be causing colorectal symptoms. If the root of your symptoms is unclear in Sherman Oaks, colonoscopy can help your colorectal specialist determine an effective form of treatment. Additionally, colonoscopy is recommended every five to 10 years to test for colon cancer in those over 50 who are at a higher risk of the disease.
Colonoscopy is performed with a specialized instrument called a colonoscope. This tool allows your colorectal specialist to view the large intestine and rectum with a light and camera, helping him or her assess your digestive health. During a colonoscopy, pre-cancerous polyps can also be removed, while your colorectal specialist may take biopsies for further testing.
