  • What is a gastroscopy?

    Gastroscopy is a safe and noninvasive 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 carefully inserted through the mouth, down the oesophagus to the stomach and to the small intestine. Gastroscopy is used to diagnose stomach problems and perform biopsies (examination of tissue sample).

  • Your doctor might recommend a gastroscopy examination if you have symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, difficulty swallowing, heartburn, upper abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss and bloating that are persistent.

    Gastroscopy is also used as a routine screening for people who have a history of ulcers or polyps (non-cancerous growths). It screens for stomach cancer and to check for abnormal findings detected on previous computerised tomography (CT) scans or x-ray tests.

    Gastroscopy can be used to remove a foreign body that has been swallowed by accident, such as a fish bone. It can also be used to stop bleeding from ulcers and to remove polyps or small stomach tumours.
