Gastroscopy

  • What is a Gastroscopy?

    Gastroscopy is a safe examination to visualise the lining of the oesophagus (food pipe), stomach and small intestine. It uses a long and flexible tube called a gastroscope. The gastroscope is inserted through the mouth and carefully pushed down the oesophagus to the stomach and the small intestine. Gastroscopy is used to diagnose stomach problems and perform biopsies.

  • A doctor may recommend a gastroscopy examination if a patient has certain symptoms including nausea, vomiting, difficulty swallowing, heartburn, upper-abdominal pain that does not go away, unexplained weight loss and bloating.

    Gastroscopy is also used as a routine screening for people who have a history of ulcers or polyps, to screen for stomach cancer and to check for abnormal findings detected on previous CT scan or X-ray tests.

    Gastroscopy can be used to treat certain conditions such as to remove a foreign body that has been swallowed by accident such as a fishbone. It can also be used to stop bleeding from ulcers, and cut out polyps or small stomach tumours.
