In brief: Many things
The bladder has a simple function: store waste and get rid of it when you tell it to.
However, that may seem simple, it is a complex arrangement of nerves, muscles and signaling pathways. When the bladder "losses control" it means there is fault in one of these complex systems. A urologist can usually diagnose the exact cause and direct treatment accordingly.
