Endoscopy

Next Steps

ENDOSCOPY IS HELPFUL IN INVESTIGATING:

  • Difficulty Swallowing
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Stomach pain
  • Ulcers
  • Abnormal Bleeding

If biopsies are taken during the endoscopy patients should expect to wait at least 48 hours for the results.

COLONOSCOPIES

Another common type of endoscopic procedure is a colonoscopy. This procedure is vital in diagnosing colon of cancer in the early stages. Men with a family history of colon cancer should begin routine screenings at age 40.
