All colorectal screening tests are not equal. It is important to know your options so you can discuss with your physician what is best for you. The goal is to get the best possible view of the inside of the entire colon to identify and remove pre-cancerous lesions, such as polyps or growths, before they become life threatening. The reliability of these examinations depends on the experience and expertise of your physician. This is why it is important to be seen by a specialist, or gastroenterologist.
