Upper endoscopy is also known as gastroscopy. This test simply involves swallowing a small tube and doing this enables your doctor to examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, i.e., the oesophagus , stomach, and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine)

Upper endoscopy is usually performed to evaluate symptoms of persistent upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and difficulty in swallowing or bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract.

The stomach must be completely empty. You should not eat or drink anything, including water, for approximately 6 hours before the examination. Your doctor will be more specific about the time to begin fasting, depending on the time of day that your test is arranged.


Colonoscopy is a test, which allows the endoscopist to look inside your entire large intestine, from the lowest part, the rectum, all the way up through the colon to the lower end of the small intestine.

The procedure is used to diagnose the causes of unexplained changes in bowel habits. It is also used to look for polyps and early signs of cancer in the colon and rectum.
Before reporting for the procedure, please follow overnight instructions given to you by doctor or the lab technician.

Colonoscopy is usually done as an outpatient or day care procedure. Before your procedure, you will be asked to dress into a hospital gown and to lie on your left side with your legs in a curled position. The procedure itself usually takes about 20-30 minutes. But, you should consider about 2-3 hours of time in totality, considering everything from preparation to treatment, colonoscopy, and recovery.
