If cystitis glandularis is not treated, it is more likely to develop into a precancerous condition called adenocarcinoma.

Cystitis glandularis is a metastatic lesion in which the transitional epithelium of the bladder mucosa transforms into glandular epithelium for various reasons. The clinical manifestations are not typical. Its clinical manifestations are urinary frequency, urgency, pain, dysuria, and gross or microscopic hematuria. If complicated with hydronephrosis, discomfort such as backache and a lumbar enlargement may occur.
Diagnosis is mainly based on cystoscopy and biopsy. Cystitis adenopathy is a relatively rare non-neoplastic inflammatory lesion in clinical practice, and it is usually a lesion coexisting with epithelial hyperplasia and metaplasia.
Current research shows that cystitis glandularis is a benign lesion, but it has the possibility of malignant transformation and is a precancerous lesion. If it is left untreated, it may develop into adenocarcinoma. It is recommended that the patient go to a regular hospital for a comprehensive examination and perform a color Doppler ultrasound or CT examination of the bladder to clarify further.
The clinical manifestations of cystitis glandularis are closely related to the lesion site. The main indication of the lesion in the bladder triangle is bladder irritation. If the lesion occurs in the bladder neck, it is mainly manifested as poor urination and difficulty urinating.
Generally, if it presents with severe symptoms such as frequent urination, urgency, and dysuria, nocturia often occurs. If some people have frequent urination, the frequency of urination at night will increase significantly. That is, nocturia will also be apparent.
Nocturia occurs in patients with cystitis glandularis. The increased frequency of urination at night has an impact on the overall condition of the body. Frequent urination at night can lead to poor sleep and an imbalance in the body's endocrine system, which affects the patient's work and study.
If the disease is not actively treated, it will bring inconvenience to life and work, and it may turn into bladder cancer, so it is recommended that patients with cystitis glandularis take active treatment. Through active treatment, people can relieve the symptoms, reduce the possibility of cystitis glandularis becoming bladder cancer and prevent further aggravation.
Aggressive surgery is often required for patients with severe symptoms. Surgery to remove the lesion can prevent cancerous changes in cystitis glandularis. Because cystitis glandularis has a relatively high recurrence rate, patients generally need regular intravesical instillation of drugs to reduce the recurrence rate after surgery. After surgery, patients should also have a periodic review of cystoscopy to detect recurrence and timely treatment.
To treat cystitis glandularis, patients can use traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. The herbs in this pill, such as plantain seed, Dianthus Superbus, and Polygonum aviculare can relieve stranguria, effectively improve the symptoms of frequent urination and relieve urethral discomfort.
In daily life, patients need to take the following nursing measures:
1. The patient needs to drink water, urinate regularly, and cannot hold back urine. It is recommended that the patient eat a light diet, not pepper, onion, and garlic cloves, and eat more vegetables and fruits rich in vitamins, such as celery and kiwi.
2. Patients can perform local hyperthermia and local acupuncture to promote blood circulation. They also should change their underwear daily and pay attention to perineal hygiene.
3. Patients need proper physical exercise to enhance the body's immunity and avoid heavy physical labor. Patients also need to do regular urinalysis and urinary system ultrasound.
