Were you looking for information about Colonoscopy? Colonscope is a common misspelling of colonoscopy.
A healthcare provider may perform a colonoscopy to help determine the cause of unexplained bowel changes or to look for early signs of rectal or colon cancer. This medical procedure involves inserting a long, flexible camera (a colonoscope) through the rectum and into the colon. This scope allows the healthcare provider to see any inflammation, ulcers, bleeding, or abnormal growths. Although a colonoscopy is a relatively safe procedure, possible complications may include puncture of the colon or bleeding.
