Bladder Lesion Removal

Bladder lesions are abnormal growths or tumours on the lining of the bladder which can be removed by an operation called a transurethral resection of bladder tumour.

Bladder lesion removal is normally carried out under general anaesthetic and takes around thirty minutes. Your surgeon will insert a thin rod-like instrument with a tiny light and lens on the tip, called a cystoscope, into your urethra. A saline solution will then be passed through the cystoscope. Your surgeon will find the lesion and insert a special wire loop through the cystoscope which carries an electric current to cut or burn off the lesion.

As you are admitted as a day case, you would normally be able to go home on the same day and there are few side effects.

Bladder lesion removal is a commonly performed procedure and there are no notable side effects.
