What are the symptoms?
Stress incontinence happens when urine leaks when you cough, laugh, lift heavy objects, or physically strain in other ways.
Urge incontinence symptoms may include an urgent need to urinate, sudden leakage, and frequent bathroom trips, often at night.
With mixed incontinence, you may have symptoms of both stress and urge types.
What causes urinary incontinence?
Most common causes for incontinence in men are:
- Weak or damaged bladder muscles
- Overactive bladder muscles
- Nerve damage
- Enlarged prostate
- Some types of prostate cancer treatment (radical prostatectomy, radiation)
- Neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis
What are the treatment options?
Treatment plan largely depends on the cause of your incontinence.
Biofeedback treatment can help make weak or damaged bladder muscles stronger and can train you to consciously control overactive bladder muscles.
Incontinence caused by enlarged prostate conditions can be improved with Urolift.
