Colonoscopy - Dubai Gastroenterology clinic

Colonoscopy is a very frequent procedure in the gastroenterology clinic used to look at the inner lining of your large intestine (rectum and colon). We use a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope to look at the colon. A colonoscopy helps find ulcers, colon polyps, tumors, and areas of inflammation or bleeding.

During a colonoscopy, tissue samples can be collected (biopsy) and abnormal growths can be taken out. Colonoscopy can also be used as a screening test to check for cancer or precancerous growths in the colon or rectum (polyps).

Uses of Colonoscopy Procedure: 

A colonoscopy is recommended in the following cases to find the cause of unexplained symptoms such as - 

  • changes in your bowel activity
  • abdominal pain
  • bleeding from the anus
  • unexplained weight loss

A colonoscopy is also a great screening tool for colon polyps and cancer when particular risk factors are available. Screening means searching for diseases before they become apparent or symptomatic to give a better chance of fully curing the disease.
