Bladder prolapse (cystocele)

Cystocele.

A bladder prolapse (cystocele) occurs when the tissues and muscles that hold the bladder in place get weak or damaged. This causes the bladder to move from its normal position and press against the front wall of the vagina. This is also called anterior vaginal wall prolapse.
