The incidence of colorectal cancer is very high, and emphasizing the mortality rate of CRC, good screening and surveillance methods are essential for the effective treatment of cancer. Early detection of the CRC is the key for its treatment. If not detected early, it can cause serious symptoms like bleeding and difficulty in bowel movement, which are considered serious symptoms. Different screening procedures are available for the screening and detection of cancer, but the most commonly used technique is colonoscopy, and another less common technique is flexible sigmoidoscopy. People who have a screening colonoscopy have a cancer mortality rate of 68 percent to 88 percent lower. Flexible sigmoidoscopy, although used in many cases has certain limitations, and therefore, colonoscopy outplays it.

Keywords: Colonoscopy, Flexible sigmoidoscopy, Surveillance.
