Who is more likely to get more advanced tests to find the cause of cystitis?

ANSWER

Often, the cause is a bladder infection and that’s all the testing you need. But if you belong to one of these groups, you may get more advanced tests to find the cause of cystitis:

  • Children
  • Men (Since they tend not to get cystitis, it could be a sign of something else.)
  • People who have kidney damage
  • Women who get three or more bladder infections in a year
