Cystoscopy is a procedure that is used to diagnose bladder problems through the use of a small camera inserted through the urethra.

Key points

  • A cystoscopy is a test that uses a thin tube with a tiny camera to look directly at the inside of the bladder.
  • After the cystoscopy, your child will need to drink plenty of fluid to help empty their bladder and flush out their urethra.
  • Your child may experience some discomfort for up to three days after the procedure.
