Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy is a safe and non-invasive procedure to provide a clearer image in the lining of the oesophagus, stomach, and small intestine. In order to diagnose stomach issues and carry out biopsies, a Gastroscopy is used. It's a flexible tube that enters the mouth and down the oesophagus into the stomach and make its way to the small intestine.

Why do you need Gastroscopy?

Your doctor may suggests a Gastroscopy assessment if you show any signs or symptoms involving nausea, vomiting, trouble swallowing, heartburn, persistent upper abdominal pain and unexplainable weight loss and bloating.

This is also used for regular check up and screening for those prone to ulcers or polyps, previous CT-Scans or X-Ray tests can help to detect for anomalies.

Gastroscopy is carried out to treat specific conditions to remove a foreign body that is swallowed by accident for example a small fishbone. It's also to block ulcer bleeding and to remove polyps or tiny stomach tumours.
