Bladder scrape - why?

So, my mother's peeing blood and has to go for a bladder scrape. Can anyone explain to me why they will be doing that, whats involved and why she isn't allowed to fly for 3 weeks after that?
Everything I find on google goes straight to bladder cancer

Thank you.

Sorry to hear about your mom. I don't know about the "scrape" part, but blood in the urine usually calls for a look-see into the bladder for tumors. I suppose if they see something they might want to biopsy it while they're in there. There are a number of causes for hematuria.

Hope she turns out to be OK.

Dont worry yourself could be what I had.
A few years ago I started peeing blood and it turned out to be kidney stones. The blood stopped after about a week and the little blighters worked their way through.
All the best
