Bladder Conditions Treatment in Hyderabad

Bladder and Its Functioning

The bladder aka Urinary Bladder is one of the components of the urinary system along with kidneys, ureters, and urethra. It is a sac-like organ situated in the lower abdomen of an individual. The urine formation takes place in the kidneys and its storage is done in the bladder while ureters help in passing down urine from kidney to bladder. The bladder’s job is to hold onto urine for some time by relaxing its muscular wall and passing urine out of the body. If you suspect any problem with your bladder, you should consult a bladder treatment doctor in Hyderabad. In case you neglect your bladder issue, chances are that you may suffer from serious health issues like kidney damage.

How Urinary Bladder Functions?

The urethra is the external tube of the bladder which is tightened with bladder muscle relaxation to prevent urine leakage. When the bladder gets filled with some amount of urine, the nerves in the bladder send signals to the brain and the person feels an urge to urinate. The passing of urine out of the body is done by contraction of the bladder muscles and relaxation of the urethra.

A healthy bladder passes out urine in a voluntary, controlled manner. Normally, a person urinates 4 to 8 times a day. Unfortunately, some people, specifically females of all ages, experience issues in their bladder functioning. Their urological problems with their bladder make them very frustrated and negatively impact their routine activities, emotional well-being, sexual health, and quality of life. Luckily everyone with bladder conditions can be helped and many of them can get completely cured.

Some Common Bladder Conditions

  • Bedwetting- This usually happens with small children but adults too can experience it. It is due to the difficulty in waking up and going to the washroom when the bladder is full.
  • Urinary incontinence- It is the unwelcome urine leakage, commonly experienced by women than in men. This mainly happens due to weak pelvic floor muscles providing less support to the bladder or urethra; an overactive bladder that causes urine to pass before the person sits on the toilet seat due to muscle contraction; or incomplete emptying of bladder (mostly due to enlarged prostate).

  • Overactive bladder- It is the condition where the person passes urine suddenly and involuntarily because of the contraction in the muscular wall of the bladder. This can happen even if the bladder has very little urine.
  • Paruresis (shy bladder syndrome)- It is the condition where the person finds difficulty in urinating or does not pass urine when others are around. It is a common kind of social phobia.
  • Cystocele (bladder prolapse)- It is a condition seen only in women due to the weakening of the wall between their bladder and vagina. It is a discomforting condition where the bladder bulges out from the vagina and it can lead to issues with emptying of the bladder. This condition is more likely seen in women after childbirth, women who strain during bowel movements, women who are smokers, and women who have chronic cough or obesity.
  • Bladder polyps- It is the condition wherein the bladder lining shows abnormal growths called polyps which could be benign or malignant. The condition is mostly seen in men and smokers.
  • Bladder cancer- It is a serious, life-threatening bladder condition. The cancer cells can be found in the bladder lining (transitional cells bladder cancer). Bladder cancer is of two kinds- Superficial/Papillary and Invasive. If the cancer cells remain constrained in the bladder lining, the condition is known as papillary bladder cancer, and if it spreads to the muscular layer and beyond, it is called invasive bladder cancer.

Treatment Options for Bladder Conditions

There are several options for urinary bladder treatment in Hyderabad available to address bladder conditions and relieve their symptoms. A urologist customises the treatment of the patient with a bladder problem as per the patient’s lifestyle, specific condition, and health goals.
