A cystocele occurs when the wall between a woman's bladder and vagina weakens and stretches, allowing the bladder to bulge into the vagina. A cystocele may also be called a prolapsed bladder.
If you are diagnosed with a cystocele, specialists in Jefferson's Department of Urology can provide personalized care through a multifaceted approach that may include self-care and medication therapy. In severe cases, our urologists may recommend surgical options to repair the cystocele and relieve symptoms.
