Colonic endoscopy (colonoscopy)
Unfortunately, the number of coloproctological diseases has been growing significantly recently. According to the Russian cancer Research Center named after N. N. Blokhin RAMS, over the past 10 years, rectal and colon cancer has risen from 6th to 4th place in the number of primary patients.
Сolonoscopy - is an endoscopic examination of the colon (rectum and colon) using a special device called a fibrocolonoscope. The concept of "colonoscopy" comes from the Greek words "colon" - large intestine and "Scopia" - to examine, examine.
Currently, colonoscopy is the most reliable way to diagnose conditions of the large intestine (for example, cancer, polyps). This method of examination allows not only to perform diagnostic examinations of the large intestine with high accuracy, but also to perform a biopsy, as well as to remove polyps (polypectomy).
Indications for colonoscopy:
- pain/burning in the anus;
- pain during bowel movements;
- discharge from the anal opening (blood, mucus, pus);
- loss of hemorrhoids;
- bloating and abdominal pain;
- constipation alternating with diarrhea;
- false urges to empty the bowels;
- rapid weight loss, weakness, decreased appetite.
