Your bladder is a hollow organ that stores urine in the body. It is found in the lower pelvis and is part of the urinary system. Your bladder has walls that are stretchy and is able to expand when urine fills up, and shrink when urine is emptied. Your kidney(s) make the urine and transport it through two tubes called ureters to the bladder. Urine leaves the bladder and body through another tube called the urethra. Your bladder is made up of three main layers; the urothelium, the lamina propria, and the musclaris propria.
