Incontinence is the involuntary leaking of urine. It is a common condition that many men struggle with, but there is hope for successfully treating this disorder. If you are dealing with the frustration and embarrassment that incontinence can bring, contact a urologist at City of Hope.
Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, resulting in the accidental leakage of urine from the body. For example, a man may feel a strong, sudden need, or urgency, to urinate just before losing a large amount of urine, called urgency incontinence.
Diagnosing stress urinary incontinence involves several steps. First, it is essential to know the severity of the incontinence to determine the best option for treatment.
There are several treatments for male incontinence, including a male sling, an artificial urinary sphincter, prostate removal, and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP).
