Another cause of urinary symptoms can be changes to the muscular wall of the bladder, which can produce discomfort and an uneven tone or bulge in the bladder. The bulge may be painless, but if it causes the bladder to become painful, you should call your doctor or your healthcare provider.
Colic is a group of disorders that are caused by damage to the thin layer of tissue that surrounds and protects the bladder. They can cause discomfort and pain as well as urinary tract infections and urinary retention. The bladder wall is a complex network of muscles that create the pressure that holds the bladder in place. The muscles that protect the bladder can become injured and misshapen, resulting in the bulge that creates the discomfort. If the bulge is large, you may have a pain that grows worse with the passing of urine, or you may have an uneven tone or bulge of the bladder. Colic can also be caused by changes in your brain, such as seizures, or by injuries to the bladder wall. There is definitely a lot of facts people should be aware of when it comes down to bladder cancer.
