The urinary bladder is located in the pelvis between the pelvic bones. When the muscles that support the pelvis are strained, which usually occurs during vaginal childbirth or chronic constipation, it may lead to anterior prolapse.
An anterior prolapse also known as bladder prolapsed or cystocele is a condition where the bladder is herniated into the vagina causing it to bulge. This occurs when the supportive tissues of the vagina become weak and stretched.
Bladder cancer is the rapid, uncontrolled, and abnormal growth of the cells of the walls of the urinary bladder. It stands in the ninth place among the other types of cancers in the world. Bladder cancer can be either non-invasive (i.e. restricted to only the inner lining of the bladder) or invasive (i.e. which spreads to the inner walls of the bladder) or advanced bladder cancer (which has spread to the other body parts).
Bladder stones are the solid masses or crystals that are made of minerals and proteins found in the urine. The stones are formed when the bladder doesn’t empty completely. The concentrated urine left in the bladder lead to the formation of crystals or hard stones in the bladder.
Blood in the urine can be alarming. While it could be a sign of a serious problem in the urinary tract in some individuals; in others it is not serious and does not require any treatment. It is only after thorough evaluation by a health care provider that blood in the urine should be attributed to a non serious cause.
Urothelial carcinoma is the cancer of urinary system that includes the kidney, urinary blaader, ureter and other accessory organs. Cancer of the ureter is a rare type of cancer. The ureter is a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder. It is a type of transitional cell cancer
Cystitis is inflammation of the urinary bladder. The major cause of cystitis is a bacterial infection called UTI (urinary tract infection). This bladder infection can become serious if left untreated as it travels to the vital organs such as kidneys.
The medical term for blood in urine is hematuria. It is defined as the presence of red blood cells in your urine. There are many causes of hematuria, but most of them aren’t serious. If you are able to see blood in your urine, then it is termed as gross hematuria.
Most of the people may experience an urge to empty the bladder, and this condition is termed as irritable bladder, also known as overactive bladder. Sometimes, the irritable bladder can be embarrassing and inconvenient. However, your doctor would help you by determining the underlying cause that is leading to the symptoms and treating it appropriately.
The urinary bladder is a sac like structure, hollow and muscular, which collects and stores urine excreted by the kidneys. When the bladder gets filled up with urine, a person gets the urge to urinate. However, there can be loss of bladder control, resulting in leakage of urine even before getting to the bathroom. This is known as urinary incontinence.
