No BPH but low urine flow @ night. Urlgst wants to insert device into penis to look for block. Is that the only next step? Flow only problem at night

In brief: Sounds appropriate

Sounds like the urologist wants to get a visual of what might be causing a urinary flow issue.
A cystoscopy sounds appropriate, however, you can discuss this with your family doctor or internist, and possibly get another opinion by a second urologist.

The prostate is a muscular gland that can change is size and texture depending on infection, recent ejaculation, etc. the prostate also is constantly growing starting at the size of an unshelled walnut at age 13-14, and growing to the size of a small apple when we are in our 80's. Cystoscopy will help make the diagnosis.

Urethral stricture also a possibility. All the more reason to have a cystoscopy. Good luck!
