What is an endoscopy?

An endoscopy is a procedure to examine inside your body using an instrument called an endoscope. An endoscope is a long, thin flexible tube with a light and video camera at the end. An endoscopy can be used as a diagnostic procedure to investigate symptoms or to carry out some types of procedures or taking tissue samples (biopsy).

Depending on what type of procedure you're having, the endoscope can be inserted into your body through the mouth or anus. The name of the procedure you have depends on which part of your body is examined. For example, a gastroscopy looks at part of your digestive system, such as your stomach and small intestine.

Types of endoscopy


A bronchoscopy is a procedure to look at your windpipe, airways and into some areas of your lungs.


A colonoscopy is an effective diagnostic procedure used to diagnose bowel conditions by passing a thin flexible tube with a camera into the bowel.


A hysteroscopy is often used to look inside the womb to investigate symptoms like abnormal bleeding and to diagnose conditions such as fibroids.


Your consultant might suggest you have a cystoscopy to help diagnose any problems in your bladder or urethra.


An enteroscopy is a procedure to examine the small intestine with an endoscope, to help diagnose digestive problems.


An ERCP is a combined endoscopic and X-ray technique used to diagnose and treat a range of liver and pancreatic problems.

Endoscopy specialists

An endoscopy is usually undertaken by an endoscopy specialist after some initial investigative tests, or as part of more extensive investigations. A team of endoscopy professionals support the consultant during the procedure, which are generally conducted as a outpatient or day case.

You can be referred for an endoscopy by your consultant or in some cases by your GP.
