Male Urinary Incontinence

Male Urinary Incontinence Doctor near Columbus, Ohio

Unintentionally leaking urine (“incontinence”) affects nearly 1 in 10 men in the United States, and the incidence is increasing as the population gets older. Quite understandably, most men are uncomfortable discussing such a personal problem, even with their doctors.

Urge Urinary Incontinence, or UUI, occurs when a patient feels the need to void, and cannot make it to the bathroom in time, and leaks urine. This is typically from a problem with the bladder muscle itself being overactive, and there are many good treatment options that can be very effective in decreasing the amount of leakage.

Male Stress Urinary Incontinence, or SUI, typically occurs after treatment for prostate or bladder cancer. This type of leaking happens with coughing, standing, laughing, sneezing, exercise, etc. “Collateral damage” from the prostate cancer treatment – surgery, radiation, brachytherapy (seeds), etc – can cause a man to lose control of his urination.
