Colonoscophy

Were you looking for information about Colonoscopy? Colonoscophy is a common misspelling of colonoscopy.
 
During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube (a colonoscope) is inserted through the rectum and into the colon. This medical procedure is commonly used to check for early signs of colon or rectal cancer, and can also help determine the cause of unexplained bowel changes. It takes about 30 to 60 minutes to perform a colonoscopy. You will probably receive a sedative and pain medicine to help you from feeling much discomfort during the exam.
