It can take several years before men with urinary incontinence do something about it. Many try to hide the problem – they are ashamed or believe that urinary incontinence is just something that comes with age. But you do not have to be ashamed or wait – you are not alone. It is important to talk openly about the problems.
Scientific examinations have shown that most people can get better. You can do something about it yourself and your doctor can help you if you cannot handle it on your own. Another important reason for contacting the doctor is that prostate cancer or bladder cancer may be the explanation for your urinary incontinence and cancer should be detected as early as possible.
