Colonoscopy

This is a procedure often used to screen for colon cancer. An endoscope (a very thin, long camera) is passed through the anus to view the large bowel and parts of the small bowel. It also enables polyps to be removed.

Gastroscopy

During this procedure an endoscope is used to look into the stomach to diagnose conditions. This is a very common procedure: more than 500,000 are performed by the NHS each year in England alone.

Sigmoidoscopy

This involves an examination of the large intestine using a rigid endoscope. It enables the doctor to look into the rectum and bottom part of the colon.
