Flexible Sigmoidoscopy- Introduction
 

This information about Flexible Sigmoidoscopy will give you a basic understanding of the procedure - how it is performed, how it can help, and what side effects you might experience. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends of the individual patient and the doctor. Please ask your doctor about anything you don't understand.

What is flexible sigmoidoscopy?
Flexible sigmoidoscopy lets your doctor examine the lining of the rectum and a portion of the colon (large intestine) by inserting a flexible tube about the thickness of your finger into the anus and slowly advancing it into the rectum and lower part of the colon.
