Endoscopic cancer screening and surveillance

What is endoscopic cancer screening and surveillance? 

Endoscopic screening for premalignant or malignant conditions is the one-time application of a test to search for lesions in asymptomatic persons in the hope that an early diagnosis will have an effect on disease outcomes. Endoscopic surveillance is testing patients with known premalignant or malignant conditions repeatedly over time to search for additional lesions in patients at increased risk.
