What gastroenterological disorder could cause inflammation?

This question was asked in Plaistow, New Hampshire on 05/15/2012.
My doctor said that I have a disease but I forget what it is called. I think it has to do with inflammation or inside hemorrhoids. Will a colonoscopy help me find out what it is? I need this taken care of.

I think it is best if you find out what disease he saw so you can get the correct treatment.

There are many disorders that involve inflammation of the colon. A colonoscopy is considered the "Gold Standard" in evaluating the colon.
