Cystoscopy to diagnose bladder cancer   more... close row

Description of service

I had to get a cystoscopy, which is a viewing of the urethra and bladder by a urologist. The price was mainly medical fees incurred from a 45-minute procedure.

Review of Service

I was once urinating with quite a lot of blood in it, and I had to get a scope done of my urethra and bladder. One is not allowed to eat for about 12 hours before the surgery, and that seems to be the hardest part about it. My surgery was delayed because the good doctor was removing a bladder cancer beforehand and he went into a two-hour overtime in which the man nearly lost his life. Once I got to the prep room, I was to remove my clothing, don hospital clothing, and get on an IV line. The anesthesiologist came over and injected something into the IV, and my family said I became quite altered after that. I just remember going into the surgery and coming out feeling like I really had to pee. The urologist showed me some pictures of the procedure, told me that everything turned out alright, and that I didn't have bladder cancer, and that I was free to go after I produced something like 300 ml of urine. Remember how I said that the not eating part was the hardest? Forget that, this was the worst. It took me 2 hours and several tries, but I finally filled the measuring cup, and was free to go. It may have been a slight ordeal, but the peace of mind was enough to cover all the costs.


I'd recommend somebody go and get the procedure if it is recommended by the doctor, as it's one of the best ways to know if one has bladder cancer.
