Colonoscopy is a test procedure in which the inner layer of the large intestine (colon and rectum) is examined with the help of a flexible and thin tube called colonoscopy. Colonoscopy is a quick procedure which completes in approximately 30 minutes if the only observation is required. In the case of polyp removal, the process will take more time. Colonoscopy is used in case of suspected ulcers, polyps, tumors, bleeding or inflammation.
