Cracks, scars, and Hunner's ulcers (star-shaped sores) in the bladder wall may bleed when the bladder is filled to capacity during a cystoscopy.
The data came during 1998-2002, with diagnoses of interstitial cystitis (IC) made by cystoscopy and bladder hydrodistention under anesthesia demonstrating diffuse glomerulations or Hunner's ulcers. A recent trend toward using only noninvasive tests to diagnose IC could result in more patients with transitional cell carcinoma being mislabeled as having IC, Dr.
