A cystoscopy is a procedure that the urologist uses to look inside the patient’s bladder. When it is done in the office, a local anesthetic is used to numb the urethra. The urologist inserts a small telescope-like instrument into the bladder and fills the bladder with some water while examining the urethra, the prostate in men and the inside of the bladder. Bladder tumors, other abnormalities of the bladder wall and stones are some of the conditions that can be observed with cystoscopy.
