ABOUT BLADDER ISSUES

Bladder conditions, which cause discomfort, incontinence, or an inability to urinate, can be concerning and embarrassing. In addition, they can cause more serious symptoms if left untreated. For this reason, it is important that you seek medical attention if you believe you are suffering from bladder-related conditions. Whether you suspect a urinary tract infection or have questions about your bladder symptoms, our board-certified medical professionals can help with a certified on-site laboratory and the means necessary to diagnose and treat your condition.

BLADDER CONDITIONS

Bladder infections are one type of urinary tract infections which can cause severe genitourinary and bladder pain. The urinary tract is made up of the bladder, kidneys, ureters, and the urethra — all of which can become infected if collected bacteria is not completely flushed out. Bladder infections vary in severity, but our staff can help determine how the best UTI treatment plan for you. If you experience a combination of any of the following symptoms, you should come in to seek treatment:

  • Pain while urinating
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Inability to void
  • Urinary retention
  • A frequent urge to urinate
  • Cloudy or dark urine
  • Leaking urine
  • Pain in the back or beneath the ribs
  • Fever, chills, nausea, or vomiting

UTI/BLADDER INFECTIONS

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) can cause serious problems if left untreated. Complications from UTIs can cause permanent damage to the bladder and/or kidneys, and bacteria can potentially enter the bloodstream and affect other organs. UTIs become especially concerning if you are pregnant or if you have a fever of 101.5º F or higher. If you have recurring UTIs, a UTI with fever or vomiting, or if you continue to experience symptoms after 48 hours of antibiotic treatment, you should seek additional care.

INCONTINENCE

Urinary incontinence is a symptom of an underlying bladder issue that should be addressed as soon as possible. Two of the most prevalent types of incontinence are stress urinary incontinence, which often affects women who have had children, and urgency incontinence. In either case, chronic urinary incontinence can lead to skin infections and urinary tract infections, and can bring embarrassment and anxiety. The most common causes of urinary incontinence include:

  • Respiratory issues and coughing
  • Weakness of the pelvic floor
  • Abnormalities of the bladder
  • Bladder infections
  • Kidney stones
  • Neurological disorders

Visited this facility with my daughter as an Urgent Care visit on 10/20/20. Check-in was quick and efficient. Both the nurse (Katie) and physician (Dr. Kipp) were friendly and welcoming and made my daughter feel at ease. The care was not rushed and the facility was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this facility to family and friends.

Excellent care that gives the small down vibe. When I went here for a horrible ear infection I liked how they were little bit away from Denton but right off Country Club Road. They were very helpful even when I had to call back and bug them with some insurance information.

I came in at 1 am in quite a bit of discomfort and pain. The front desk staff was friendly and they took me back very quickly. Nurse was very friendly and caring. The doctor was thorough.
Clean and well run office! I work in the medical field and I liked what I saw and experienced. I won’t hesitate to return if needed.
