Colonoscopy Center

Did you take part in the colorectal cancer population screening, and was blood found in your stool? Please consider coming in for further diagnostic examination at the Netherlands Cancer Institute colonoscopy center. Anyone is welcome at our center, even people who were referred to a different colonoscopy center by The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu; RIVM). You can change the appointment yourself through DigiD - see the instructions in the letter containing your results. We will schedule your colonoscopy with you and always try to invite you for your consultation within 15 weekdays. Your colonoscopy will be done by gastroenterologists at the Netherlands Cancer Institute. 

The first Dutch colorectal cancer population screening took place in 2014. This population screening program is intended for all men and women between 55 and 75 years old and is carried out by the RIVM. Your stool will be screened for blood. Tests are sent to your home and can be returned to the lab. 


If you have any questions, please contact the staff of the colonoscopy center at  020 - 512 9111 or at


Your intake will be near the entrance of clinic 3 on the ground floor at the Netherlands Cancer Institute. You can register at the assistant in hallway B, the first hallway on your right. Please visit this location during your first visit as well. 

You will get your colonoscopy at our Diagnostics and Treatment Center (Onderzoek en Behandelcentrum; OBC) on the second floor of the Netherlands Cancer Institute.
