Flexible Cystoscopy

What is a Flexible Cystoscopy?

A Flexible Cystoscopy is a medical procedure used to examine the inside of the urinary bladder and urethra. It involves the use of a flexible and thin tube with a camera at the end, called a cystoscope. The cystoscope is inserted through the urethra and advanced into the bladder, allowing healthcare providers to visually inspect the urinary tract for abnormalities, blockages, or other conditions. This procedure is commonly performed to diagnose and monitor various urinary tract issues, such as urinary infections, bladder conditions, and urinary tract stones.

What are the advantages of a Flexible Cystoscopy?

Flexible Cystoscopy offers several key advantages in the examination and treatment of the urinary tract. A primary benefit is the direct visual examination, allowing healthcare providers to accurately identify and diagnose various urinary conditions or abnormalities. This minimally invasive procedure typically requires less recovery time than open surgery and is often performed on an outpatient basis. Beyond diagnosis, flexible cystoscopy also enables treatments such as the removal of small bladder stones, obtaining tissue samples through biopsies, and addressing certain urinary conditions. These features collectively make flexible cystoscopy a valuable and versatile tool in urological care.

What are the possible risks of a Flexible Cystoscopy?

Flexible Cystoscopy, while generally safe, carries potential risks that should be considered. Patients may experience temporary discomfort or mild pain during and after the procedure, including a burning sensation during urination. In some cases, minor bleeding may occur, especially if a biopsy or minor treatment is performed; however, this bleeding is typically minimal and stops on its own. There is a minimal risk of infection following cystoscopy, particularly with invasive procedures or treatments. Some individuals may experience temporary difficulty urinating immediately after the procedure, usually resolving within a few hours. Understanding these potential risks is crucial for individuals undergoing flexible cystoscopy, emphasizing the importance of informed decision-making and post-procedure monitoring.

What happens after a Flexible Cystoscopy?

After the procedure, patients can usually return to their regular activities the same day. Any discomfort, such as a burning sensation during urination, should resolve within a day or two. The healthcare provider will discuss the findings of the cystoscopy with the patient. If biopsies were taken or any treatments were performed, the results or follow-up recommendations will be discussed. Patients should follow any post-procedure instructions provided by their healthcare provider, which may include increasing fluid intake or avoiding certain activities for a short period.

Our procedures

At Get Well Soon we specialise in elective procedures. Elective surgery is different from urgent or emergency surgery, where the patient’s life might be in danger but
we understand that for many patients, these conditions
an often be debilitating and painful.

Elective procedures are often the sort of operations that the NHS are unable to prioritise, so seeing a doctor privately may be the only way you can have your
condition treated quickly.
