- It’s no secret that a gastroenterologist is who you need to see for digestive problems or to have a colonoscopy. However, the exact scope of care provided by a gastroenterologist is often misunderstood. Beyond the gastrointestinal tract, these specialists also care for other organs that are involved in the process of digestion, including the gallbladder, pancreas, and liver. If you've been diagnosed with chronic hepatitis infection, an immediate concern you may have is how to find the right doctors to help you manage your condition. Dr. Shamim Box has been serving as the best gastroenterologist of Chittagong for years. From diagnosis through endoscopy and/or colonoscopy to the entire treatment of the patient, Dr. Shamim box offers full attention and care. A colonoscopy is an exam of the colon and rectum using a tiny camera to search for polyps, cancer, or other diseases. The medical community recommends that anyone who does not have risk factors for colorectal cancer should get a screening colonoscopy starting at age 50. You may need to have a colonoscopy at a younger age if you have an increased risk of colon cancer. These risk factors can include: • Having familial polyposis syndrome (a condition that runs in your family and is linked to an increased risk of forming polyps). • Having a genetic condition associated with colon cancer. • Having inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. • Having first-degree relatives with colon cancer (that is, your mother or father, brother or sister, or child). • Having multiple relatives with colon cancer.
