Can Problems Be Missed With a Colonoscopy?

Colonoscopy has been done for many years with good results. It is an effective method for finding problems with the lower digestive tract. However, it is possible that abnormal growths can be missed. This could occur because the bowel prep was not done well, or because of the placement and size of the growth. This is one reason why it is very important to tell your healthcare provider about any symptoms you may have after the colonoscopy.
