Status nach Operation eines Kolonkarzinom mit letzter *kolonoskopischer Kontrolle* vor zwei Jahren. Diesbezueglich sollte unbedingt eine *Kontrollkolonoskopie* durchgefuehrt werden.

colonoscopy (or: colonoscopic examination/checkup/study)
Explanation:
colonoscopy (or: colonoscopic examination/checkup/study)

>>Status following carcinoma of the colon with the last colonoscopy (or colonoscopic examination/checkup) two years ago. This patient should therefore definitely (or: unquestionably, by all means) be subjected to another colonoscopy (or colonoscopic examination/checkup).<<

In my experience at least, two years is the approximate interval between colonoscopic checkups for patients that have only been diagnosed with one or more small PREcancerous polyps on prior colonoscopies. So it’s quite long given the history of cancer of the colon.
