Colorectal Awareness

"Evidence from the National Polyp Study has shown clear evidence that removing adenomas (polyps) during a colonoscopy reduces risk for colorectal cancer significantly. There were more than 1,400 patients in the study who had colonoscopies and all existing polyps removed. After an average of six years, only five people developed colorectal cancer, all at an early stage. None died.

 

The colonoscope is a thin, long, flexible instrument with a lighted lens or video camera at its end. Instruments to remove polyps or take samples of tissues for biopsies can be introduced through the scope. During a colonoscopy, the scope is inserted carefully through the rectum and guided through the colon.

 

A colonoscopy allows the doctor performing the test to see the entire colon from anus to cecum and remove polyps."
