By allowing your doctor to view the interior of the urethra, bladder, and the openings of the ureters, a cystoscopy may reveal the following conditions:
An unusual growth, such as a polyp, cyst, or tumor,
A stone in or near the bladder,
Chronic inflammation or infection,
A stricture, or narrowing, of the urethra
Enlargement of the prostate gland, or Ulcers in the bladder wall.
