Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

Is it normal for Accutane to cause pubic bone pain? (the pain is right above my bladder, could also be muscle pain, seems to be worse after sex.)

Is it normal for Accutane to cause pubic bone pain?  (the pain is right above my bladder, could also be muscle pain, seems to be worse after sex.)

Don't think so: There is a small piece of cartridge called the pubic symphysis the can get inflamed. Try a different position so that area gets less pressure. Also the bladder is in there and if peeing more or having pain could be a contributor. I don't think the accutaine is adding to the problem but google it and stay off the complaint patient page. Look for pain in bone or cartlidge, not just pubic bone. ...Read more

As long as it getting better, u r ok. Good luck. ...Read more

I m 22 yr old virgin. I noticed pink lumpy tissue above my vaginal opening no pain. Is it a bladder prolapse due to heavy weight lifting in gym?

Probably not...: Weight lifting would not induce bladder prolapse in a women with no childbirth at 22. What could that lump be? It may just normal and unique for you. Nonetheless, the surest way is "to see and to believe" by an experienced physician, preferably by a gynecologist. Best wish to health... ...Read more

I had gall bladder surgery 3 weeks ago and now I am having pain in my left side above  my belly button. Why?

See Your Surgeon: It's very difficult to answer this without the benefit of the knowledge of your surgery or your physical exam findings. What i can tell you is that the gallbladder is usually removed from the abdomen thru the umbilical incision. Therefore, it is common to have pain there even three weeks later. ...Read more
