The camera lens at the end of the gastroscope sends images from the inside of the patient’s body to a monitor. The doctor will look at these images to examine the lining of your oesophagus, stomach and duodenum.
If necessary, the doctor will take a biopsy and remove small growths of tissue called polyps. This is done using special instruments passed inside the gastroscope and is quick and painless, although the patient may feel a slight pinch. The samples will be sent to a laboratory for testing to determine if they are benign (not cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).
