Circumcision

Male circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, the fold of skin covering the end of the penis. Circumcision is a common practice in the Jewish and Islamic faiths but it is generally believed among the medical community to have no real medical benefit.

Cystodistension

A procedure where a cystoscope (a narrow telescope) is passed through the urethra (the tube that takes urine from the bladder to the outside of the body) into the bladder. The bladder is then filled with water causing it to stretch. This is usually done to aid diagnosis for patients with painful bladder syndrome.

Cystoscopy

A procedure used to examine and diagnose problems with the bladder. A cystoscope is inserted into the urethra and moved up into the bladder. The camera on the cystoscope relays images to a screen where they can be viewed by a specialist.

Flexible Cystoscopy

When a cystoscopy is performed using a flexible cystoscope (see Cystoscopy), a thin, flexible tube used to look inside the bladder.

Excision of Epididymal Cyst

The epididymis is a small organ over the back of each testicle where sperm are stored. A cyst can develop in this area and enlarge with fluid, becoming uncomfortable. The cyst can be removed during surgery under general anaesthetic.

Excision of Lesion of Scrotum / Testes

The surgical removal, or excision, of lesions on the scrotum or testes is performed in order to prevent the spreading of a condition. Tissue can also be removed and tested, aiding in the diagnosis of problems.

Frenuloplasty

This is an operation to release a fold of skin on the underside of the penis in order to prevent pain and discomfort during intercourse.

Hydrocelectomy

This operation removes fluid that collects around a testicle, called a hydrocele. Most hydroceles are harmless and only need treatment if they become uncomfortable.

Urethral dilation

A procedure that involves the gentle stretching of the urethra, the tube through which you pass urine. A thin plastic rod is passed into the urethra either under local or general anaesthetic. Rods of increasing thickness are gently inserted to gradually widen the stricture.
