What Is A Gastroscopy?

A gastroscopy is a telescopic and visual examination of the oesophagus, stomach and the upper section of the small bowel. This is performed by passing a small flexible tube through the mouth and down into the stomach.

During the examination, biopsies may be taken by passing a small forceps through the scope to pinch the lining of the stomach. This is completely painless.

Using the scope, your doctor can look for ulcers, inflammation, tumours, infection, or bleeding. He or she can collect tissue samples (biopsy), remove polyps, and treat bleeding through the scope. Your doctor may find problems that do not show up on X-ray tests.
