Cystoscopy

Procedure using a fine telescope / camera to inspect the inside of the:

Urethra

Prostate in males

Bladder


This is usually done to investigate causes of bleeding, infection, decrease bladder emptying / flow, overactive / underactive bladder symptoms.

It can be used for detecting cancer and obstruction.

This can be a day procedure and also can be done under sedation (but depends on what is specifically done)

Risk including urine bleeding and infection especially if a biopsy has been taken.  

Other risks like making a hole in the bladder are rare.
