Hello Doc

sorry to be so blunt but it's bad. How will he get it inserted
Thanks again

Brief Answer:
Urologist do not face difficulty in doing Cystoscopy with retracted penis

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up .

Urologist is accustomed to do cystoscopy routinely and never faces any difficulty in doing it even with small retracted penis .Once the endoscope is inserted through the tiny hole he can pass it up easily as the urethral passage is dilated with continuous flow of running water or saline .

Thanks and Regards.

Brief Answer:
Cystoscopy could have been advised to rule out a small tumor in the bladder

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for writing in again.

Looking at the history of two episodes of blood in urine your concerned physician has suggested you to get the Cystoscopy done to rule out the possibility of small tumors in the bladder. I would suggest you discuss this with the concerned physician as well.

Cystoscopy is the most reliable and direct evidence-based test carried out to find out the cause for blood in urine.

Thanks and Regards.
Dr. Patil
