An upper endoscopy, also called an EGD, is a procedure perfromed using a scope to examine the esophagus, stomach and beginning of the small intestines to diagnose and treat upper digestive tract problems.
A colonoscopy is a medical test using a scope to examine the colon/large intestine to look for abnormalities and disease. The American Cancer Society recommends that adults who are at average risk for colorectal cancer start having regular colonoscopies when they turn 45.
