Yes: Nobody can force you to have a procedure.What do youmean by"itogisy".Enlarge "orifice in bladder",I assume you mean the urethral orifice.If the doctor is recommending cystoscopy at your age of 79 and your urethral orifice is too small,chances are you have a slow stream & your prostate needs checking.It is not possible to get scope in unless orifice is enlarged.It sounds like you are in good hands.
