Bladder Problems

Help with bladder problems in later life.

The bladder is the organ that stores urine. As you get older, the sudden intense sensation of needing to go to the toilet (urgency) may increase. This is a normal part of aging. The most important point to remember is that everyone with a bladder problem can be helped, and many can be completely cured.

Most cases of urgency and incontinence are caused by an overactive bladder or a urinary tract infection. However, for some people, the cause is never found. Bladder problems require medical attention to ensure the underlying cause is treated to avoid rapid deterioration in health and wellbeing.

Often urgency resulting in incontinence happens with no warning, first of all causing embarrassment and then discomfort. The embarrassment caused by incontinence can affect a person’s confidence and impact on their ability to engage socially.

If you are concerned about your or a loved one’s bladder problem, make an appointment to see a consultant. They will complete an assessment and develop a treatment plan. Remember most bladder problems can be resolved easily with early intervention.
