A colonoscopy is a procedure that enables the doctor to examine and evaluate the inside of your colon for any signs of bowel-related conditions using an endoscope which is a long, thin, and flexible tube. Lasting for about 30 minutes to an hour each time, a colonoscopy procedure is also one of the recommended methods for colorectal cancer screening.
Ganglion cysts are common lumps that are usually found in the hand and wrist. They may occur at the back or the front of the wrist, at the end or base of a finger. They are filled with gelatinous fluid from nearby joints or tendon sheaths. There is no specific cause. Ganglion cysts may be painful when they first appear or when they are at a pressure point. The procedure to remove a ganglion cyst or lump is called an excision. This procedure is a minimally invasive to remove a ganglion cyst or lump through a tiny incision. It can be completed with you discharging on the same day of procedure.
A skin abscess is a pocket of pus just under the surface of an inflamed section of skin. It’s usually triggered by a bacterial infection. Incision (cut) and drainage is a surgical procedure to drain pus from an abscess. Abscess drainage is the treatment typically used to clear a skin abscess of pus and start the healing process.
A hernia is a hole through the muscle layers in the abdominal wall. It can be painful, especially when lifting, bending, straining with a bowel movement, or coughing. Direct inguinal hernias usually occur in adult males whose abdominal muscles have weakened. Therefore, surgery can be performed from in the laparoscopic approach, or in a traditional open approach to restore the tone and shape of abdominal wall.
