Endoscopic biopsy information and locations in Mexico

Biopsies help diagnose cancer and noncancerous conditions of the digestive system. Endoscopic biopsies are used to collect tissue samples on suspicious areas of the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine. The sample is sent to a lab for testing.
The biopsy can help detect H. pylori bacterial infection, cancer, and abnormalities such as ulcers or gastritis. During the test, the specialist introduces an endoscope through the mouth or rectum; which is a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light that transmit images to a monitor. The endoscope is guided to the inner lining to look for abnormal-looking areas.
If abnormal tissue is found, surgical tools are passed through the endoscope to collect the sample for further testing.
