Cystoscopy is a procedure during which the lower urinary tract is evaluated with a lighted telescope. It is usually performed in the office under local anesthesia, and only takes a few minutes. This procedure is commonly done for many conditions, including but not limited to:

• Urinary tract infections
• Blood in the urine (hematuria)
• Loss of bladder control (incontinence) or overactive bladder
• Unusual cells found in urine sample
• Need for a bladder catheter
• Painful urination, chronic pelvic pain, or interstitial cystitis
• Urinary blockage such as from prostate enlargement, stricture, or narrowing of the urinary tract
• Stone in the urinary tract
• Unusual growth, polyp, tumor, or cancer
