Urinary Tract Cancers

Bladder Hernia

12/08/2008

Question:

I have a swelling around my vagina area - I had a total hysterectomy about 5 years ago along with my bladder being tied up - Could this be a bladder hernia?

Answer:

If the so called swelling is around the vagina, it is not bladder prolapse. But if the swelling is coming out from the vagina it is a bladder prolapse. You should see your gynecologist.
