Our expert says:
Cystoscopy is looking into the bladder with the scope camera. Bladder biopsy is taking a very small piece of tissue with a small tool at the end of the scope. Fulguration of the lesion is basically burning the raw area with a small electrical current to stop bleeding. RGP is retrograde pyelogram - this is an examination of the kidney and ureters by injection of a contrast fluid (visible on x/rays). Dil BN is dilatation of the bladder neck - slight stretching of the area where the bladder and urethra comes together to help the bladder to empty better. It will probably take less than 30 minutes.
