My Child Needs a Colonoscopy — What Should I Know?


The colon — also known as the large intestine — is where stool is formed, stored, and then pushed out.

A colonoscopy is a test uses a small tube with a mounted camera and light on it to look directly at the lining of the colon. Your child may need a colonoscopy if they have blood in their stool, diarrhea, or abdominal pain.
