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.

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