Weight Loss

There may be many different reasons for weight loss, including benign causes such as Coeliac disease and thyroid problems, but unexplained weight loss is symptomatic of gastrointestinal malignancy and therefore it is important to investigate.

If you experience weight loss the following tests may be recommended:

  • CT scan
  • blood tests
  • X-ray of the chest
  • radiological tests
  • ultrasound scans

A gastroscopy or colonoscopy may also be useful during the diagnostic investigations.
