Causes and Development

Some people are simply born with a larger-than-normal bladder.  For other people, bladder enlargement is often caused by a blockage of the urinary tract, for example by bladder stones or a tumor.  Other causes include abnormally high urine output volume, urine retention, or repeated failure to empty the bladder completely.

Treatment and Prevention

Surgery is generally used to remove the obstruction if that is the cause.
