Have you had your coloscopy?
The American College of Physicians recommends a colonoscopy once every 10 years for people who meet all of the following criteria:
- are 50 to 75 years old
- are at average risk of colorectal cancer
- have a life expectancy of at least 10 years
What is a colonoscopy?
During a colonoscopy, your doctor checks for abnormalities or disease in your large intestine, particularly the colon. They’ll use a colonoscope, a thin, flexible tube that has a light and camera attached.
The colon helps form the lowest portion of the gastrointestinal tract. It takes in food, absorbs nutrients, and disposes of waste.
The colon is attached to the anus via the rectum. The anus is the opening in your body where feces are expelled.
A colonoscopy can be performed as a screening for colorectal cancer and other problems. The screening can help your doctor:
- look for signs of cancers and other problems
- explore the cause of unexplained changes in bowel habits
- evaluate symptoms of abdominal pain or bleeding
- find a reason for unexplained weight loss, chronic constipation, or diarrhea
All services can be ordered by your primary care physician and schedule to be performed at on campus at Southern Tennessee Regional Health System in Pulaski.
