hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you are diagnosed to have acid peptic disease and you have seen gastroenterologist.
they have suggested endoscopy..
there is no/very remote chance of injuring internal organs.. with the present technology there is no need to get scared with the procedure..
so better to go for it..
all the very best..
