Cystocele is simply a tumor formed by the bladder pressing into
the walls of the vagina. The bladder descends into the pelvis on account
of relaxation or destruction of its normal support. The anterior wall of
the vagina yields.
Causes. Tear of the perineum allows the bottom of the pelvis to relax.
Undue relaxation of the ligaments of the bladder and of the floor of the
pelvis, with over distention of the bladder, are responsible for the
majority of the cases.
Symptoms. Weight and dragging feeling. A tumor can be felt in the vagina.
It decreases when the bladder is emptied.
Treatment. Supports are suitable in some cases (Skene's pessary). An
operation is necessary in many cases.
