Doctor
Bladder infection is also known as cystitis.
Cystitis is a common inflammation of the lining of the bladder, which accounts for about 50% to 70% of the total number of urinary tract infections.And it is caused by bacteria infecting the bladder (severe cystitis) or by non-bacterial inflammation caused by irritation. Women are more prone to suffering from cystitis than men because women's urethra is not only shorter but also close to the anus, which forms an easy entry for escherichia coli.The most typical symptoms of cystitis include frequency of urination, urgency of urination, painful urination, or even urge incontinence, and sometimes with hematuria and pyuria.
