EGD (Upper Endoscopy)
Upper endoscopy enables the physician to look inside the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (first part of the small intestine). The procedure might be used to discover the reason for swallowing difficulties, nausea, vomiting, reflux, bleeding, indigestion, abdominal pain, or chest pain. Upper endoscopy is also called EGD, which stands for esophagogastroduodenoscopy (eh-SAH-fuh-goh-GAS-troh-doo-AH-duh-NAH-skuh-pee).
A colonoscopy is a procedure in which a physician examines the lining of your colon by looking through a flexible tube called a colonoscope. If growths or other abnormalities are found during the procedure, the physician will remove or biopsy the abnormal tissue and send it to the pathology lab.
