Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
Antibiotics are given for treatment of UTI.
Biopsy is done to look for inflammation or cancer or tuberculosis or something called interstitial cystitis, which has the same symptoms of UTI.
It depends on the clinical situation. To look for a cause for recurrent UTI, the urologist resorts to cystoscopy or to look for any of the other problems i have mentioned above.
The biopsy is not going to show the organism like urine culture and sensitivity.
Hope this helps. Please write back for doubts if any.
best regards

Squamous metaplasia may be due to long standing infection or irritative process of any cause like catheterisation and so on.
If the biopsy taken from THE area and shows non-keratinizing type, there should be no worry.
If it is of keratinizing type, then you need followup cystoscopy.
One of the ways to prevent repeated episodes of infection is to take long term antibiotics, like you are taking.
Hope this helps.

welcome back.
I understand your worry.
Since you continue to have symptoms, your urologist wants to proceed with cystoscopy to look for a cause ( i have mentioned possible reasons in my previous answer) of your symptoms.
You need to seen clinically and your symptoms need to be correlate with the biopsy report. There may not be a ready-made solution and if so would have been solved by now.
Only detailed evaluation will help.
Hope this helps,
Best regards
