Endoscopy is a noninvasive procedure which is used to determine the presence of cancer in the patient.
Endoscopy is a noninvasive technique that is used to examine internal organs of the body to diagnose, establish stage, and treat cancer. In this process, an endoscope, a device with a camera, is put inside the body via mouth, anus or urethra. It can also be inserted through a small incision. The images hence captured through the tube-like device are then watched over a screen. It is useful in seeing organs like esophagus, chest, stomach, colon and rectum. Endoscopy is used in oral cancer to detect cancer at an early stage, to obtain a tissue sample, locating and removing an affected tissue, removing blockages in lungs, and determining the spread of the cancer.
