Polyps could possibly be causing your discomfort, however, a diagnostic colonoscopy by a board-certified gastroenterologist is the only way to verify this. If you’re experiencing persistent symptoms such as constipation, gas/bloating, blood in stool, and change in bowel habits, it could signify a serious health condition that should be medically examined.

Is Diagnosing Intestinal Polyps a Complicated Procedure?

Diagnosing intestinal polyps is a fairly uncomplicated procedure done by a colorectal surgeon or gastroenterologist. A colonoscopy is the best procedure for detecting and diagnosing intestinal polyps or any other large intestine abnormalities. A patient prepares in the same way to cleanse the colon as with a screening colonoscopy. A week ahead of the procedure, certain foods are avoided and some medications stopped. Only a clear liquids diet is allowed the day before the colonoscopy then nothing on the day of the procedure. Patients will also consume a substance to help clear the bowels.

A screening and a diagnostic colonoscopy are technically similar. However, during a diagnostic colonoscopy the physician is examining the large intestines for the purpose of diagnosing intestinal polyps or other abnormalities that could be causing the discomfort.
