Bladder: in case of illness

Different conditions can affect the bladder. Very common: cystitis (inflammation of the bladder).

In case of problems, you must of course consult your doctor or a specialist in the urinary system: a urologist. This specialist is usually a surgeon, but he can treat different conditions of the bladder without necessarily having recourse to surgery (prescribe drugs, functional rehabilitation ...).

In women, it is sometimes a gynecologist who takes care of certain bladder problems.

Urinary incontinence

It is manifested by involuntary leakage of urine, more or less important, but also by imperious desires. Urinary incontinence is more common in women (her urethra is very short).

Urinary incontinence can have different origins or contributing factors:

  • multiple pregnancies,
  • a stroke,
  • Parkinson's disease,
  • Alzheimer's disease,
  • stones in the bladder,
  • prostate cancer.

The child may have difficulty containing urine, especially at night (enuresis).

In all cases, the surgeon will be keen to preserve the bladder. It is only in the most infiltrated cases that he will consider the removal of the bladder. You want to react, to give your testimony or to ask a question? Appointment in our FORUMS urinary problems or A doctor answers you!
