Your bladder is responsible for collecting the urine, which is excreted by the kidneys, before it is disposed through urination. There are many health issues that you might experience with your bladder. For example, you may suffer from incontinence, an overactive bladder, a urinary tract infection, bladder cancer, hematuria, or interstitial cystitis.
Urinary incontinence is a condition where you suffer from the accidental loss of urine. More than 15 million American men and women have this illness. Many people suffer from this condition in silence and it does not allow them to live life to the fullest. You should be aware that most of the causes of incontinence can be treated successfully.
An overactive bladder (OAB) is a condition where you feel a sudden and uncomfortable urge to urinate without any kind of urine leakage. This occurs when the smooth muscle of the detrusor muscle of the bladder squeezes or contracts more often than normal and at inappropriate times. The causes of this condition are not entirely known; however, it is linked to causes such as drug side effects, nerve damage, and neurological disease.
Urinary Tract Infection
Urinary tract infections are quite common; around 40% of women and around 40% of men will experience at least one symptomatic urinary tract infection throughout their lifetimes. When you have a urinary tract infection, the urethra will become red and infected, just like your throat does when you have a cold. This can cause pain and may make you feel like you need to urinate more often.
