Bladder cancer

Bladder cancer is often diagnosed early — when it's most treatable. But even with successful treatment, bladder cancer survivors need follow-up tests for years to come.

Bladder stones

Bladder stones are small masses of minerals in your bladder — often forming as a result of an enlarged prostate, nerve damage or infection.

Cystitis

Cystitis is an inflammation of the urinary bladder. It's most often caused by a bacterial infection but may have other causes.

Interstitial cystitis

Frequent urination and pelvic pain may indicate interstitial cystitis, a chronic bladder inflammation. There's no cure, but some treatments offer relief.

Prostatitis

Prostatitis, inflammation of the prostate gland, can cause significant male pelvic pain and other symptoms.

Vaginal cancer

Vaginal cancer is a rare cancer that typically occurs in older women.
