INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS AND BLADDER PAIN
Interstitial cystitis is also known as bladder pain syndrome. It is a condition which causes pelvic pain and urinary symptoms, including urinary frequency, urgency, and waking at night to pass urine.
It is usually caused by inflammation in the wall of the bladder, although symptoms of the disease may be present without visible inflammation in the bladder on cystoscopy.
Interstitial cystitis often requires a combination of treatments to settle the symptoms of the disease. At Brisbane Urology Clinic, our urologists are experienced in the multidisciplinary treatment of interstitial cystitis.
