A colonoscopy is an exam of your colon, or large intestine. This test helps doctors find ulcers, polyps, tumors, and inflammation or bleeding in your large intestine.
Most importantly, a colonoscopy can identify signs of colon cancer, the second-largest cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. A colonoscopy can detect colon cancer at an early stage, when it is easiest to treat.
