The large intestine is involved in the formation of the lower part of the gastrointestinal tract. This organ absorbs food and nutrients and excretes wastes that attach to the anus through the rectum. It is used to examine the colon and colonoscopy, and is used as a screening method for colon cancer and other diseases that help the doctor diagnose the following:

  • Investigate the symptoms of cancer and other problems
  • Find the cause of unexplained changes in bowel habits
  • Evaluation of symptoms of abdominal pain or bleeding
  • Find the cause of chronic constipation or unexplained diarrhea

According to statistics, 90% of polyps or tumors can be detected through colonoscopy screening.


The patient is placed on his side and his knees are placed near the chest. A sedative is injected. The doctor examines the rectum and large intestine with a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera called a colonoscope. It is possible to sample and even remove small polyps. It is also possible to take photos. The camera at the end of the colonoscope transmits the images to the monitor. For better visibility, the gut is filled with carbon dioxide, which is safe.
Colonoscopy is recommended for people over the age of 50 or people who are moderately at risk for colon cancer.

A colonoscopy is a diagnostic procedure in which the doctor may also perform the treatment with a colonoscope during the operation, or the doctor may find the patient has an acute illness that requires major surgery, or the patient may have no problem or have a minor problem. All these diagnoses are the responsibility of the treating physician. In general, if there is no particular problem, the patient can be discharged from the hospital on the same day of the colonoscopy.

If the doctor allows a colonoscopy, the necessary preparations will begin according to the patient's condition. The patient's diet becomes fluid 24 to 72 hours before the colonoscopy. Clear liquids, chicken broth, broth, porridge, refined soup, liquids, compotes, gelatin, pulp-free fruit juice, coffee or iced tea etc, should be consumed. Note that it is important not to drink red or purple liquids. Because it changes the color of the large intestine. The patient may also need to use laxatives such as bisacodyl tablets, bisacodyl suppositories, laxative syrups such as hydroxy magnesium syrups or castor oil or pidrolax powder. These laxatives cause the patient to have diarrhea, which keeps the patient's intestines clean and free of intestinal material so that the doctor can be better seen and the entire intestine can be seen and examined.
