Cystitis: urgently take action
- It is a common disease, they get sick more often women because of the anatomical features of the urethra (in women it short and wide, while men - long and narrow, which contributes to "settling" there is infection and the appearance of urethritis).
The cause of cystitis is most often infection (Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and so on) that gets into the bladder upward (from the external genitalia and urethra), descending (kidney) or through the bloodstream from distant foci of inflammation.
But bladder mucosa normally resistant to infection, and only with a decrease in immunity may develop inflammation. It occurs when supercooling, after acute or exacerbation of chronic diseases, exhaustion (eg, subject to long-term limiting diets), chronic stress, fatigue, etc. Sometimes the inflammation begins to the damage of the outflow of urine and stagnation, for example, narrowing of the urethra or prostate cancer.
Bladder infection may occur without infection, such as damage to the inner lining of the bladder an acute urinary stone, chemicals (including some medications) after prolonged use at high doses, with thermal and chemical burns (usually a consequence of health care manipulation).
Symptoms can vary slightly, depending on the cause of inflammation of the bladder.
