Cystoscopy Rigid Male

Cystoscopy Rigid Male at Mount Stuart Hospital

What is a rigid cystoscopy (male)?

A rigid cystoscopy (male) uses a thin rigid tube called a cystoscope to look at the inside the bladder and urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body from the bladder) of a man.

Often a rigid cystoscopy is performed if your doctor anticipates taking a biopsy or treating a bladder problem. A rigid cystoscopy is slightly wider than a flexible cystoscope and it does not bend. The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthetic. Small surgical instruments can be passed down the cystoscope to treat some bladder problems at the same time as the examination.
