Cystoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inside of your bladder and urethra. It’s done using a thin, lighted tube called a cystoscope.
The doctor inserts this tube into your urethra and on into the bladder. Your doctor can see areas of your bladder and urethra that usually don’t show up well on X-rays.
Your doctor can also insert small surgical tools through the tube to take samples of tissue (biopsy) or urine samples.
• Small bladder stones and some small growths can also be taken out this way. So the test may help keep you from having to go back for surgery.
