What is an endoscopy?

An endoscopy is a general term for a procedure where the inside of your body is examined using an endoscope – a thin flexible tube with a light source and camera at the end. Endoscopes are inserted into the body through the mouth or anus. Sometimes they can be inserted through a small surgical cut made in the skin in a procedure known as keyhole surgery.

What diseases can be detected by an endoscopy?

Depending on what type of endoscopy procedure you have, it used to detect a variety of diseases of the digestive system. These include: coeliac disease; Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD); stomach and duodenal ulcers; stomach cancer, bowel cancer; irritable bowel syndrome; ulcerative colitis; Crohn’s disease; and, liver disease.

Types of endoscopy

Some of the most commonly used types of endoscopies include: 

  • Gastroscopy or upper GI endoscopy – a camera down throat endoscopy used to examine your oesophagus and stomach
  • Capsule endoscopy – a pill sized video camera, which your doctor asks you to swallow so that they can examine the midsection of your gastrointestinal tract, which includes three parts of the small intestine – the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum. 
  • Colonoscopy or lower endoscopy – used to examine your large intestine (colon)
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy – used to examine your rectum and lower colon
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) – used to check for gallstones
  • Nasal endoscopy – used to examine your nasal and sinus passages
  • Endoscopy of throat – used to examine the back of your throat

How long does an endoscopy take?

An endoscopy can take between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the type of procedure and what it’s being used for. It is often done as an outpatient clinic so you can go home straight after the procedure.

Endoscopy preparation

As part of your endoscopy prep, you need to avoid eating or drinking anything for at least 8 hours before the procedure. If you’re having a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy you may be given a laxative to clear your bowels.

Is an endoscopy painful?

The procedure is normally carried out while you’re awake. It is not painful but you might experience some discomfort including mild indigestion or a sore throat. You’ll be given a sedative if requested to help you relax. The sedative will make you sleepy but not put you to sleep. You can go straight home after the procedure. However, if you have been sedated you need to stay in a recovery area until it has worn off.  Avoid driving, operating heavy machinery, and drinking alcohol for 24 hours after your procedure.

Endoscopy is a relatively safe procedure with very few risks. However, there are slight risks of complications, including infection of the part of the body being examined, perforation of an organ or bleeding. There are also slight risks associated with sedation, such as breathing difficulties and heart problems. You are monitored throughout the procedure and the sedation can be reversed if there is a problem. If you have pain, redness or swelling in the area where the endoscope was inserted or have symptoms such as dark stools, shortness of breath, vomiting, severe abdominal or chest pain, you should contact your GP.

Endoscopy vs colonoscopy

Endoscopy is a more generic term. It is used to describe non-surgical procedures that examine the digestive tract. A colonoscopy is a specific type of endoscopy, which examines the large intestine (colon).

Gastroscopy vs endoscopy

A gastroscopy is a procedure, which specifically examines the beginning of the gastrointestinal tract, comprising the oesophagus and the stomach. An endoscopy refers to all procedures, which use a special camera to examine the digestive tract.
