Have you given blood for a PSA test?. Has your GP done a DRE (digital Rear Examination - finger up your bum) to feel whether your prostate is hard or irregular? It could just be that it is enlarged called BPH for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. It can be a bit of a drawn out process getting all the tests and results but meanwhile try not to panic

No Barry she hasnt she seems more concerned with my bladder for some reason i had a urine test a couple of weeks ago and it showed i had a water infection and was treated but because my prostate was pushing on my bladder they want to do the cytoscopy in my bladder thanks .

A cytoscopy won't tell them whether you have prostate cancer; perhaps once that's done you could ask whether they intend to do PSA test, DRE and possibly an MRI?
