  • Flexible Sigmoidoscope

    Flexible sigmoidoscopy is one of the many tests that may be used to screen for colon cancer or other issues effective the lower digestive tract. During the test, your physician uses a flexible, narrow tube with a light and tiny camera on one end, called a sigmoidoscope, to look inside the rectum and the lower, or sigmoid, colon. Flexible sigmoidoscopy can show irritated or swollen tissue, ulcers, and polyps—extra pieces of tissue that grow on the inner lining of the intestine.

    Your doctor may perform a sigmoidoscopy to help diagnose changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, rectal bleeding or weight loss.
