apparently my urethra bled profusely when a cystoscope was inserted, what would be the reason for this and is that normal?

May be...: It could result from urethral dilation for easier cystoscopy or occasionally and simply just an inevitable injury to a submucosal vessel of urethra. Nonetheless, such event does occur usually self-limiting with no clinical significant. For detail, ask doc timely as needed. Best luck...
