Your kidneys and bladder are both important parts of your urinary system. The kidneys and bladder are connected through two slender tubes known as ureters. One comes out of each kidney and connects to the bladder. This connection of kidney, bladder and ureters makes up part of what is known as your urinary tract.
Urinary Tract Infections
The most common disorder in the urinary tract is a urinary tract infection, also known as a UTI.
A UTI usually occurs in the bladder when germs enter through the genitals and begin to multiply. This condition is also known as a bladder infection. A bladder infection is generally annoying because it causes stinging or burning pain, especially during urination. But it usually goes away on its own in a few days, or when treated with antibiotics.
