Scheduled to have an EGD done next month. Have had swallowing issues and throat tightness for couple years. Will this help diagnose problem? Worried.

EGD. Swallowing problems sometimes referred to as dysphagia have a number of potential causes. By having an EGD a number of issues can be addressed. Often providers will also perform other tests such as a barium swallow or cine-esophagram to further evaluate a patients symptoms. Often dysphagia is evaluated and treated across specialties such as GI medicine, General surgery and ENTs.
