Cystoscopy is a simple and common procedure that involves looking into the bladder using a small, fiberoptic scope inserted through the urethra. The procedure takes less than 2 minutes. The scope has a camera attached that allows the patient to see everything the doctor is seeing during the procedure. Cystoscopy is commonly used to evaluate blood in the urine, bladder cancer, recurrent infections and prostate obstruction.
