The first sign is blood in your stool or in the toilet water. A Specialist - Gastroenterologist will order a colonoscopy to scope the colon, take samples to determine if there is a tumor. If you have had any blood you need to see your Physician right away. Also, if you have nausea. There is a Flexsigmoidoscopy that can be done where the camera looks at the sigmoid and the colonoscopy views the whole upper and lower part of the colon. The colon is done at a hospital or out patient center and the flexsig is done at the Specialists office. Sedation is ordered for both test and prep is done prior to both tests. Your Specialist will determine which tests should be done.
