The bladder is a pyramidal shaped organ, which sits in our pelvis (the bony structure which helps form our hips). The main function of the bladder is to store urine, and under the appropriate signals, release it into a tube which carries the urine out of the body. Normally, the bladder can hold up to 500mls of urine. For more information please see male or female urogenital system.
