    An endoscope is a device with a light attached, used to look inside a body cavity or organ. The scope is inserted through a natural opening, such as the mouth during a bronchoscopy, the rectum for a sigmoidoscopy, or the vagina for a cystoscopy. A medical procedure using any type of endoscope is called endoscopy.

    An instrument for examining visually the interior of a bodily canal or a hollow organ such as the colon, bladder, or stomach.

    Kind of a tiny video camera on the end of a flexible tube.

    Usually the person is placed under general anaesthesia, then the tube is inserted into an opening in the body, either the mouth, nose, ear, rectum, or one made by the doctor with a scalpel. The doctor can find things like tumors, blood clots, infected tissue, ulcers, etc.

    Some endoscopes have little devices to collect biopsies, or to cauterise flesh to stop bleeding. Some are used to aid in surgery on sensitive areas like the heart or spine.

    it's a camera used to see inside your insides. It's usually shuved up your bum or other available opening, but some use arteries and an incision is made for them.

    sounds like you're in for some fun!!
