Colonoscopies not infallible when detecting colorectal cancer

A recent study found that colonoscopies, once thought to be an infallible way to detect colorectal cancer, may miss many cancers. A Canadian study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in December reported that a colonoscopy may miss a type of polyp, a flat or serrated lesion or an indented one that rests against the colon wall. While colonoscopies are still recommended as a highly effective way to diagnose and prevent colon cancer, the test is much less accurate than previously thought.
