In brief: Contracted bladder

Sometime bladder does not distend or fill to capacity related to scar tissue, infection, or neurologic issues.
Sometimes chemotherapy , radiation therapy and other medications can contract the bladder with fibrosis. Certain kinds of surgery may interfere with bladder function. Sometimes early in life bladder does not develop to full capacity.
