What is Flexible Cystoscopy (Male)?

A flexible cystoscopy is a frequently performed test that examines the inside of your bladder. It is a minimally invasive procedure so you will not have any cuts.

In men, a flexible telescope is inserted into the urethra through the tip of their penis. It does not usually hurt but you may feel some discomfort. A local anaesthetic is typically used to numb the area and prevent infection.  

Being flexible, the telescope bends following an S-shaped course from the penis, through the prostate gland and to your bladder. You may feel like you need to pee during the procedure.

The procedure is performed if you have urinary symptoms such as blood in your pee, problems peeing, recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), and ongoing pelvic pain. These problems are best diagnosed by looking inside your bladder using a cystoscope.

If your doctor sees a problem during the cystoscopy, they may remove small pieces of tissue, called a biopsy. If they find a small growth, polyp or stone, they may remove it through the cystoscope using tiny instruments.
