Is Bladder Burst A Real Thing?

Q:

My girlfriends told me holding urine isn’t good, and she said holding too much urine could explode the bladder. I was shocked, cause I do the holding quite a lot. Does the bladder really explode?

A:

Under special circumstances, yes. For someone who had major surgery or cancer or had radiation in his bladder, bladder rupture is possible. For normal people, bladder rupture because of holding too much urine is almost impossbile. However, there was a case reported that a young man who didn’t empty his bladder for 6 hours was unable to urinate, he was then hit by a hard object, causing his bladder cracked with a seam.

However, people who don’t emply the bladder frequently has a higher chance of infection, with bladder and kidney.
