In brief: IC

Ic is often seen in females, but males can have the symptoms too.

Interstitial cystitis is an inflammation of the inner lining of the bladder wall, causing symptoms of spasm, urge to urinate and feeling of pain when bladder is filling with urine.
This condition is much more common in women.
