can see everything. The doctor may also ask you to change the position which
will help the doctor in inspecting from both sides. You might feel some cramps
during the complete procedure which is common. To get relief from cramps, take
some deep breaths during the process. As the examination completes, the
colonoscope will slowly be removed from the lining of your bowel.
While examining, if the doctor sees something abnormal, he may remove some tissues for further analysis and tests which are called a biopsy. The abnormal growth of tissues can be easily removed. In most cases, colonoscopy helps the doctor in diagnosing the issue properly which further helps the doctor to treat without any operating procedures.
