Check For Bowel Cancer Or Not?
Morning, I want to ask if the surgery checks for colon cancer / what is the anesthetic?
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
It seems like what you mean is a colonoscopy examination. A colonoscopy is an examination carried out using a device in the form of a long, flexible tube, which is equipped with a small camera so that the doctor can see the condition of the intestine from the screen. This examination is done to see the condition of the large intestine and rectum. Usually used when doctors suspect a patient has colon cancer. The examination is carried out in the operating room with previous anesthesia so that the patient can relax. Then the doctor will insert the instrument through the rectum until it reaches the large intestine. The doctor will pay attention to every part of the intestine that is passed through the tool. If an abnormality is found, the doctor will take a small amount of abnormal tissue to be identified by anatomic pathology (or known as a biopsy) if needed.
Thus, hopefully useful.
