When symptoms develop that are associated with bladder cancer, patients are referred to a urologist, a doctor that treats disease of the urinary tract. Your doctor will likely perform an office-based procedure called cystoscopy to further evaluate your bladder. A cystoscope is a small flexible tube with camera that is inserted into the urethra and passed into the bladder. Your doctor will be able to visualize the entire bladder and urethra during this examination in order to determine if there is a tumor present. While this procedure can provoke anxiety, it is tolerated very well. You will be able to drive home after the office procedure without difficulty.
