Urinary Incontinence (Male)
The inability to hold one’s urine can affect both men and women. Loss of bladder control may be a symptom of habits, an underlying medical problem, or physical problems. The risk increases with age and other health problems like enlarged prostate or pelvic organ prolapse.
There are many products on the market to help with the embarrassment associated with leakage. Lifestyle changes, such as spreading out fluid intake, avoiding alcohol and caffeine, and planning bathroom visits can also help. Your doctor may also recommend pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, medications, or a medical device such as a pessary for women. Surgery is a very successful and minimally invasive option for patients that are good surgical candidates.
