Colonoscopies Are at the Heart of What We Do
Many patients come to GI Specialists of Georgia seeking a colonoscopy or colon cancer screening. This type of endoscopic procedure allows our gastroenterologists in Douglasville and Atlanta to look for any signs of abnormal growths in your colon. Such abnormalities could be colon polyps leading to colon cancer over time. The procedure allows us to take a closer look at your colon (large intestine) courtesy of a small flexible endoscopic tube containing a tiny high-definition camera. We administer IV sedation to keep patients comfortable during the procedure. Adults over the age of 45 should schedule a colonoscopy to ensure everything’s functioning as it should be, as colon cancer remains a leading cause of death in the United States and throughout the world. Early detection is essential in your battle against colon cancer.
Recognizing Swollen Liver Symptoms and Causes
Some patients come to GI Specialists of Georgia seeking the professional advice of our liver doctors in Douglasville and Atlanta. A lot of the patients we see have a swollen or enlarged liver. Would you recognize swollen liver symptoms if you were suffering from them? Symptoms may include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, poor appetite, muscle aches, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), or itching. Swollen liver causes include cirrhosis, hepatitis, genetic disorders, liver cysts, noncancerous liver tumors, and liver cancer. Because a swollen liver can be indicative of a more severe issue, you should get it checked out immediately. Please contact our offices for more information or an appointment.
