What Is a Colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is a test designed to check patients for colon problems. Our GI doctors may recommend this medical testing service to detect abnormalities of the colon/large intestine and rectum. The exam checks for changes or potential signs of cancer during the colonoscopy and discuss its findings with you after doing an in-depth analysis once you recover. Should any signs of trouble appear that are more suited for a doctor’s treatment rather than the care of a nurse. Most patients recover without any problems and can then ask their doctor how the exam went and the next steps.

If you have symptoms of a GI condition, such as abdominal pain, vomiting, loss of appetite, nausea, fatigue, dark/discolored urine, and more. We encourage you to reach out to our gastroenterology department at McDonough District Hospital if you have questions.
