Gastroenterology - Medical/Kolkata
An Endoscopy is a diagnostic tool used for examining the inside of your body for either diagnosis or treatment purposes. It is most commonly used to examine the esophagus, stomach, and colon when there are complaints of abdominal pain or tenderness, difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) or even indigestion at times. This procedure is especially recommended for people over 50 years of age.
