Colonoscopy Information Sheet
At this time you are due for a colon evaluation. The reason to evaluate the colon is to look for polyps (growths in the colon which can be pre-cancerous or non-precancerous), cancer, inflammation and other abnormalities. Without a colon evaluation there is a risk of developing colon cancer.
The two alternative to colonoscopy include a flexible sigmoidoscopy followed by a barium enema or a virtual colonsocopy. Virtual colonoscopy is neither the standard of care nor covered by insurance. Although the risks are smaller, these alternative exams are neither as good a colonoscopy, nor can diagnostic biopsies be performed. Just so you know I had my colonoscopy in October of 2009 so I know first-hand what you’re going through!
