Our expert says:
A gastroscopy can be used to take a biopsy of the internal lining of the stomach, to determine if you have H. Pylori infection. The biopsy is also very useful to detect stomach cancer. It might also be that she thinks that you may have an ulcer, if not H. Pylori, so all possible causes for your symptoms can be investigated with the gastroscopy.
