Why Does Cystitis Glandularis Cause Bladder Pain?

Cystitis glandularis is a relatively rare non-neoplastic inflammatory lesion that is benign in its own right but with the potential for malignancy and is considered a precancerous lesion. At the same time, it is a specific type of cystitis that is primarily characterized by its difficulty in healing, recurrent symptoms of frequent urination, urinary urgency, and painful urination, as well as hematuria.


However, in addition to these symptoms, bladder pain caused by it also has a serious impact on the normal life of patients.

Why does cystitis glandularis cause bladder pain? We will explore this below.

The exact etiology of this disease remains unclear, but according to available research, it may be due to a combination of factors. One of the most common triggers is a chronic infection of the urinary system, where a bacterial invasion of the bladder causes an inflammatory response, leading to congestion, edema, and pain in the bladder mucosa. 

In addition, friction and injury from stones can also cause bladder pain. As for neurogenic cystitis, it is due to neurological lesions that lead to weakened bladder contraction and poor urine discharge, which can easily lead to infection and pain.

To address the etiology of this disease, let's analyze the mechanism by which cystitis glandularis causes bladder pain.

First, inflammatory response is one of the key factors. When the bladder mucosa is damaged by infection, stone irritation, etc., the inflammatory cells will release inflammatory mediators, such as histamine and prostaglandins, which will stimulate the sensory nerve endings of the bladder mucosa and then produce pain.

Second, the tug reflex is also an important mechanism. The accumulation and dilatation of urine in the bladder exerts a pulling action on the bladder wall, resulting in pain.

Third, some studies have also found that patients with glandular cystitis may have specific nerve fibers in the bladder mucosa that are particularly sensitive to inflammation and tugging stimuli, which exacerbates the pain response.

Bladder pain caused by glandular cystitis seriously affects the patient's normal life, and the pain also causes and exacerbates symptoms such as urination difficulty, frequent urination, and urinary urgency. In addition, the long-term inflammatory response may also lead to further damage and lesions of the bladder mucosa, making treatment more difficult.

Therefore, if patients experience discomfort in urination as well as bladder pain, they need to go to the hospital in time for examination and diagnosis. It is necessary to start from the cause to find a suitable solution and relieve the symptoms of pain caused by cystitis glandularis.

First, antibiotic treatment can be effective in controlling the infection. If the effect of antibiotic treatment is not obvious or the symptoms are recurring, drug resistance has likely developed. Therefore, patients should choose traditional Chinese medicine without drug resistance for treatment, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It has the functions of anti-inflammation, sterilization, detoxification, and pain relief, which helps eliminate and reduce inflammatory reactions, relieve pain, and improve patients' immunity.

Second, for pain caused by stones, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy and surgical stone removal can be used to remove the cause of the disease and achieve the purpose of treatment.

Third, for pain caused by neurogenic cystitis, medicinal food, and other methods can be used to improve bladder contraction function and reduce pain.

In conclusion, bladder pain due to cystitis glandularis is a severe and complex problem. Understanding its pathogenesis and causes of pain helps us to develop a targeted treatment program. Patients can be treated with a combination of antibiotic therapy, surgery, and a medicinal food regimen, which can effectively relieve their pain symptoms and restore normal life. 

Patients should also enhance their confidence in treatment, maintain a good state of mind, and firmly believe that as long as they are actively treated, they can regain their health.
