What Is Thickening of the Sigmoid Colon?

Answer

Thickening of the sigmoid colon means the wall of the colon is thickened, due to inflammation. Small pockets develop in the intestinal wall (diverticulitis), in which faeces become trapped, causing inflammation or infection, giving the left iliac fossa pain (diverticulitis). It is caused by lack of fibre in the diet and/or chronic constipation and is fairly common and its treatment is to increase dietary fibre and increase fluid intake.
