Introduction

Thorough knowledge of why urinary incontinence arises and what you and the doctor can do is helpful.

Urinary incontinence with men can appear in many different ways. Slow urine stream, difficulty emptying the bladder, urgent need to urinate, drip following urination and frequent urination are some of the most frequent problems.

With age, more and more men experience problems with urination but not many talk about it even though it is quite common.

In everyday life, the anxiety for urinary incontinence causes a number of problems. Even small things –for example going shopping or visiting family – becomes enormous. A trip abroad is cancelled and so is the trip to the stadium or the cinema. You isolate yourself from fear of not reaching a toilet in time. The result is a strongly limited everyday with reduced life quality.
