Diagnostic endoscopy


A diagnostic endoscopy is an examination performed to look at internal organs using a long, tube-like instrument with a lens and light attached to it, also known as an endoscope. It is inserted through a natural opening such as the mouth or anus. It is used to diagnose conditions and illnesses like breathing disorders, chronic diarrhea, incontinence, internal bleeding, irritable bowel syndrome, stomach ulcers, and cancer.
