Yep, called a cystoscope. Usually a local anestestic (SP) is used, not normally painful, may be a little uncomfortable. It might take 5 or 10 minutes, start to fi9nish. Similar to inserting and removing a catheter. Just a little bigger. There's really no recovery time. It's just a slinky hose with a light and lens at the end they use to look into the bladder and the inside of the urethra. Usually not a big deal.
