What We Do

Bronchoscopies are done in a procedure room in which a doctor, with the help of a nurse, inserts a flexible, fibre-optic tube called a bronchoscope into your mouth or nose to look inside your lungs.

Some reasons for having a bronchoscopy include:

  • Infection, such as tuberculosis, pneumonia or an abscess
  • Diagnosis of cancer
  • Investigation of bleeding
  • Investigation of  chronic cough
  • Excessive mucous in lungs/lung collapse
