What is Male Urinary Incontinence?

Say no more.
Male urinary incontinence can occur due to a variety of medical conditions including:
- Prostate Cancer
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Obesity or lack of exercise
- Bowel Surgery
- Old Age
- Chronic coughing
- Slow or weak urine stream
- Interrupted urinary stream
- Feeling of incomplete emptying after voiding
- Frequent urination
- Urgency to urinate
- Inability to make it to the bathroom in time to urinate, leading to incontinence
Because male urinary incontinence is caused by a wide variety of conditions, treatment will likely involve treating the root cause. Options may include:
Your treatment plan will likely include lifestyle changes in addition to medication. Changes may include fluid management, bladder training, and pelvic floor exercises.
Mirabegron and Alpha-blockers like Tamsulosin are two common medications prescribed to help relax bladder muscles.
Depending on the severity of your case, it may be necessary to use a sphincter cuff or sling to prevent urinary incontinence long-term.
