A cystoscopy is a test to check the health of your urethra and bladder. You might also hear it called a cystourethroscopy or, more simply, a bladder scope.

It’s an outpatient test, which means you can get it at your doctor’s office, a hospital, or clinic and go home the same day. The doctor inserts a tube into your urethra. It’s just above your vagina. The test lets your doctor check the complete length of your urethra and the bladder for polyps, narrow areas called strictures, abnormal growths, and other problems.

Dr. Sharma applies topical anesthesia to the urethra for comfort. After the procedure, you may feel a slight burning on urination or see minimal blood on wiping.

Why Do You Get a Cystoscopy?

This test can help Dr. Sharma:

  • Check out symptoms like blood in your urine, overactive bladder, incontinence (leaking or peeing when you aren’t trying), or pain when you pee, urinary retention.
  • Find the cause of frequent urinary tract infections
  • Diagnose bladder diseases like bladder cancer, bladder stones, and bladder inflammation (cystitis)
  • Treat conditions — the cystoscope can remove small tumors
  • If you had other bladder procedures such bladder slings.
