Frequently Asked Questions
Is endoscopy safe?
Endoscopy is a procedure that is considered very safe. The term ‘endoscopy’ is actually an umbrella term that encompasses several types of procedures (upper and lower endoscopy) that examine your digestive system. At Direct Endoscopy, our endoscopy procedures include gastroscopy (upper GI endoscopy), colonoscopy (lower GI endoscopy) and capsule endoscopy (examination of small bowel).
The risks associated with endoscopy procedures are all extremely rare, but may vary slightly depending on whether additional procedures are required during the endoscopy, such as taking a small tissue sample (biopsy), removing polyps (abnormal tissue growth), and stopping bleeding from ulcers.
Rare complications include:
Perforations or tears in the gastrointestinal tract (particularly if removing a polyp)
Bleeding (particularly if removing a polyp)
Allergic reaction to anaesthesia
Your doctor will be able to provide you with more accurate information about any risks you should be aware of for your endoscopy procedure.
What is endoscopy needed for?
Endoscopy is needed for 3 main reasons. This includes investigation, diagnosis, and treatment of abnormalities related to the oesophagus, stomach, colon and small bowel.
Endoscopy is used to investigate several symptoms related to the digestive tract and system. This includes symptoms and conditions such as:
Altered bowel habit – diarrhoea and constipation
Unintentional weight loss
Blood found in stools
Diagnosis and follow up of Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease
Gastric and Duodenal ulcers
Endoscopy is used to examine the inside of your digestive tract to observe and diagnose the problems in the oesophagus, stomach, and colon – and diagnose conditions such as colorectal, gastric and esophageal cancers, as well as any other issues found in your digestive tract including Diverticular Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. A small sample of tissue (or biopsy) may be taken during the endoscopy to establish a diagnosis.
Endoscopy can also be used for direct treatment. Some examples of therapeutic treatments performed during an endoscopy include:
Removing of abnormal growths (known as polyps). If polyps are not removed, these growths can potentially develop into cancer.
Seal bleeding or abnormal vessels. Endoscopes can be used to cauterize or seal bleeding vessels with heat (diathermy), APC (Argon Plasma Coagulation) or clips.
Dilatation of narrowed portions (strictures) in the oesophagus or colon.
Can endoscopy detect cancer?
Yes cancers can be detected and also biopsied to confirm the diagnosis during these procedures. Tissue samples or biopsies obtained from endoscopy procedures can be used to detect cancer of the oesophagus, stomach, colon and other areas of the digestive system. These tissue samples are sent to laboratories for testing and will determine whether cancer is present.
