It is safer than colonoscopy because heavy sedation is not required and the left colon is less at risk of perforation during the procedure than the right.

Most cancers and adenomas are left-sided and therefore within reach of the instrument. Modeling has shown that a single flexible sigmoidoscopy at age 55 years would identify those patients who have developed adenomas, enable these to be removed, and so prevent subsequent left-sided cancer .
