INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS AND BLADDER PAIN

Image showing inflammation of the wall of the bladder, as seen on cystoscopy. 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.
