Bladder cancer is an uncontrolled, rapid growth of abnormal cells in the bladder and usually begins in the lining of the bladder. If bladder cancer is suspected, or previously diagnosed, it is likely a cystoscopy will need to be performed.
A cystoscopy is a medical procedure typically preformed in office, where Dr Lance Walsh uses a thin, tube-like telescope called a cystoscope to look directly into the bladder for a close examination of the lining.
If during a cystoscopy Dr Walsh discovers any abnormal growths or suspicious areas, he may remove tissue samples via a biopsy and send them to the laboratory for further examination.
