The bladder is a hollow organ in your lower abdomen that stores urine. Many conditions can affect your bladder. Some common ones are:
- Cystitis – inflammation of the bladder, often from an infection
- Urinary incontinence – loss of bladder control
- Overactive bladder – a condition in which the bladder squeezes urine out at the wrong time
- Interstitial cystitis – a chronic problem that causes bladder pain and frequent, urgent urination
- Bladder cancer
Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. It may include medicines and, in severe cases, surgery.
