Colonoscopy fact sheet

Colonoscopy (KOH-luh-NOS-koh-pee) is a test that can prevent colon cancer or find it early when it's easier to treat and cure. Colonoscopies are done in an outpatient setting at a clinic or at a hospital. The test is done by a gastroenterologist or a doctor who has specialized training to find and remove polyps from the colon and check for signs of cancer. Polyps are growths in the colon that may turn into cancer.

Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) instructions for patients

This test looks for hidden (occult) blood in your stool (fecal matter). Hidden blood is sometimes a sign of polyps (growths) in your colon that may turn into cancer. Completing this test is important because even if you have a polyp, you may never feel symptoms—only screening can detect it.
