In brief: Here are some...

Cystoscopy is a direct look through urethra into bladder with a telescope under optical vision to see if there are tumor, blockage, stone, stricture, foreign body, etc.
Urodynamics is done to test how your bladder and urethra work together, normally or abnormally, and how the urine control can be, so to decide if surgery for blockage or incontinence is needed or not, and how to do them. So, ask dr.
