Weekend Colon Cancer Screening
Colonoscopy is a procedure that allows us to directly inspect the entire colon using a long, thin flexible instrument called a colonoscope. We recommend that all adults aged 50 and older have regular colon cancer screening by colonoscopy, whether or not they have symptoms such as lower abdominal pain, a change in bowel habits, anemia, weight loss, bloody stools or bleeding from the rectum.
We often find small precancerous or benign masses known as polyps during colonoscopy. In these cases, we perform colon polypectomy, which is the removal of polyps from the inside lining of the colon, also known as the large intestine. We can remove most polyps easily during colonoscopy, before they become cancerous.
With East End Gastroenterology & Hepatology, you get the added benefit of having your colonoscopy performed on the weekend, at our own convenient onsite endoscopy center.
