How does a cystoscopy feel?

ANSWER

You may feel discomfort as the cystoscope is placed into the urethra and bladder. You will probably feel a strong need to urinate when the water fills the bladder. If a biopsy is taken, you may feel a slight pinch.

After the procedure, your urethra may be sore and you will feel a burning sensation during urination for a day or two.
