What is curettage?
Kyoo-reh-TAZH) A treatment that scrapes and removes tissue from the uterine lining. A curette (spoon-shaped device) is placed into the uterus to remove tissue after the cervix has been dilated.
(NEE-oh-PLA-zum) A mass of aberrant tissue that arises when cells expand and divide excessively or do not die as they should. Neoplasms might be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancer). Benign neoplasms may become big, but they may not spread to or invade neighboring tissues or other organs.
What does the root combining form in the word cystocele mean?
This week, we will discuss a frequent condition among women known as cystocele, commonly known as prolapsed bladder. The initial step is to determine the word’s origin. It has both French and Greek origins: cysto-, which means “bladder” or “pouch,” and -cele, which means tumor.
- In essence, a cystocele is the result of a bladder that has descended from its natural location in the body (in front of or “in front of” the uterus) and is pressing against the vaginal wall.
- A diagram is quite useful for comprehending this concept; please remember that this is a cross section of the body.
Now that we have a good understanding of what is physically occurring in the body when a cystocele is present, let’s discuss the possible symptoms and viable therapies. Having a cystocele does not imply your bladder is slipping out of your body! This is extremely essential to comprehend, since dispelling this myth helps alleviate the worry many women have over this diagnosis.
- Yes, your bladder has lowered and can sometimes be felt or seen bulging through the vaginal wall.
- However, the vaginal wall acts as a barrier between the bladder and the exterior of the body, therefore the bladder cannot truly leave the body.
- Phew! With knowledge of what a cystocele is (and is not! ), we can discuss the common signs of bladder prolapse.
Depending on the degree of the prolapse and other variables, the following list of probable symptoms might vary. A sluggish flow of urine The sensation that the bladder is still full after peeing. Urine loss while sneezing or coughing Lower pelvic feeling of heaviness, soreness, or discomfort Sensing physical pressure or swelling in the vaginal region.
- Discomfort or pain associated with sexual activity — the sensation of a “block” Please note that the presence of one or more of these symptoms does not always indicate a cystocele.
- Many of the aforementioned symptoms are also related with other illnesses.
- If you are having any of the aforementioned symptoms, we recommend consulting a physician to discuss your symptoms and, if necessary, getting a prescription for a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist assessment.
If you do not have a physician, you can also schedule an examination with one of our therapists to evaluate if additional therapy is required. In the subsequent chapter of Taking the Fear Factor out of., we will address (rectocele, vulvodynia, vestibulodynia, etc)
