During the EGD procedure, once a polyp or other abnormal tissue is found, it can be removed immediately by the doctor. The sample is taken for further analysis to determine if a surgical procedure is necessary.
The endoscope camera will transmit the images to a computer screen. Instruments will then be used to remove polyps, extract tissue samples, inject solutions, or remove infected tissues.
If the EGD reveals the presence of an ulcer, polyp, or other abnormal tissue, subsequent surgery may be necessary.
