Doctors Health Press Reports on German Study: Only 20% of Patients Get Colonoscopies, Important in Preventing and Diagnosing Colon Cancer

Minor injuries to the intestinal wall can also happen—but less than once per 1,000 exams.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article states that these are very low risks, and they only potentially happen when a large polyp is found and removed. But then again, finding that large polyp was critical in the fist place, because it was quite likely to turn into colon cancer.
