It is believed that with early diagnosis, 90% patients with bowel cancer can be cured. Therefore, early diagnosis plays a very important role in bowel cancer.
Colonoscopy is currently the most reliable method for early detection of bowel cancer. During colonoscopy, it is possible to detect and, in some cases, remove polyps, which are a precancerous stage, during the same examination. Therefore, colonoscopy is not only a study for the early detection of bowel cancer, but it can also prevent the development of bowel cancer at the precancerous stage. Many experts therefore strongly recommend the use of colonoscopy as a means of prevention.
