Bleeding From an EGD

Bleeding from an EGD (upper endoscopy) is rare. Most often, if bleeding occurs, it is when a procedure such as taking a biopsy or removing a polyp is also performed. In most cases, this bleeding is minor. In rare cases, the bleeding is more serious and may require a blood transfusion, another endoscopic procedure, or, rarely, surgery.
