Title - Transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) as a day caseDescription - Your recent cystoscopy (camera into the bladder) has shown a growth in your bladder that needs treatment. During the operation the doctor will examine your bladder once again using a cystoscope. The growth will be removed from your bladder or a sample (biopsy) of the growth may be taken. These will then be sent to the laboratory to be examined under the microscope.
