What happens during a cystoscopy in Chichester?
- A cystoscopy is usually performed using a variety of anaesthetics. You may also be given a sedative to help you relax. An anaesthesiologist will recommend what method will be used based on your own situation.
- This procedure is usually performed as a day case meaning you will be able to go home the day of your procedure
- A jelly like substance will be applied to your urethra. This is a local anaesthetic to numb the area and help the cystoscope pass through your urethra
- Your consultant will ease the cystoscope gently through your urethra and carefully examine the passage as well as the lining of your bladder. Sterile water may be used to flush the area
- They will look for any abnormalities and may take a urine or tissue sample for analysis in a lab
- In some cases a tissue sample will be taken and sent to a lab for analysis
