    Does Colonoscopy check the Prostate as well?

    I am having a colonoscopy done in several weeks, and I am curious if it will see the prostate. My ****** searching has turned up unrelated information, and I am curious.

    Should have asked the doctor, but didn't think of it at the time.

    Just checked ****pedia, and it looks like the prostate isn't even in the colon (silly me).... so I am going to assume it is not checked in a scope.
