September is Interstitial Cystitis Awareness Month


Interstitial Cystitis (IC), also known as Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS), is a feeling of pain and pressure in the bladder area that also causes urinary urgency, frequency and lower urinary tract symptoms that last for more than six weeks without an infection or cause.

There are millions of people suffering from IC – more than 4 million women and men in the US alone. 90% of those with IC are women and the average onset of symptoms is around 40 years old.

There is no identified cause of IC, but there are at least five possible treatment options. Urologists at Urology of Central Pennsylvania are trained to help patients suffering from IC. If you are experiencing bladder pain, please call UCPA today at 717-724-0720 or 717-763-1174.
