colonoscopy versus sigmoidoscopyColonoscopy Versus Sigmoidoscopy
The relative merits of colonoscopy versus sigmoidoscopy in colon cancer screening has been a source of ongoing debate. Recent articles in The New England Journal of Medicine suggested that colonoscopy is superior to flexible sigmoidoscopy as a colon cancer screening method. However, experts worry that the articles send the wrong message. That people get regular screening of some sort is more important than what screening tests are used, they say.
