This is a procedure often used to screen for colon cancer. An endoscope (a very thin, long camera) is passed through the anus to view the large bowel and parts of the small bowel. It also enables polyps to be removed.

This is an examination of the large intestine whereby a flexible endoscope is passed via the rectum through to the furthest part of the colon.
