Hi,


Flexible Cystoscopy is a method of introducing a camera or instruments into the bladder to facilitate viewing/investigating the condition of the bladder, the visible part of the prostate gland and the two entries from the left and right kidneys.

The procedure is conducted with a cystoscope which can also introduce a number of instruments into the bladder to perform various procedures.


The tube of a flexible cystoscope is approximately the diameter of a large conventional drinking straw snd can be introduced without pain but to reduce discomfort a slightly anaethetising lubricant is used to introduce the cystoscope through the aperture of the urethra – the tube that voids urine from the bladder.


The female urethra is less complex and is only 4-5cms. long (1.5 > 2 inches) that of males is approximately 20cms. in length (8inches) passing through the penis and through the prostate gland into the bladder with a couple of channels joining the urethra for the introduction of semen and ejaculate from the testese and prostate respectively.
