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.
