The bladder is a
balloon-shaped muscle that serves as the storage pouch for urine.
Urine is made in the kidneys and flows from them to the bladder through
the ureters. From the bladder, urine flows through the urethra to the outside
of the body.
The bladder is part of the urinary tract, along with
the kidneys, ureters, and the urethra.
