What is an endoscopy?
An endoscopy can be used to help treat a digestive tract problem or diagnose polyps, which can be removed to prevent the development of colon cancer.
Why might I need an endoscopy?
- If you’re having difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
- Tummy pain that does not go away or keeps coming back
- Diarrhoea and feeling - or being – sick regularly
- Unintentional weight loss
- Regularly experiencing heartburn or indigestion
- Blood in your stool
