What Is a Gastroscopy?

A Gastroscopy involves using a thin flexible tube (endoscope) to examine the upper digestive tract, usually to look for ulcers or polyps. The procedure can also be used to treat conditions like bleeding ulcers, widen a narrow oesophagus (dilatation), or remove a foreign body. Doctors take tissue samples (biopsies) of anything unusual they see, and can remove any polyps they find.
