Controlling the Urge

Posted on

Urinary incontinence is a serious and bothersome condition for both men and women.  Incontinence or the accidental release of urine is not a medical condition in itself.  Not many know that it is usually a manifestation of an underlying problem that men may have in their urinary tract.

How to know for sure that you have problems with bladder control so that you can seek help to treat it?  Bladder control problems are categorized into different types.  When your condition is classified under stress incontinence, you might notice that you leak a little urine when you cough, when you strain, when you lift something, or when you change position.  If a patient has urge incontinence, there are times when the need to urinate is so urgent that you cannot reach the toilet anymore.  For men experiencing overflow incontinence, you only release a small amount of urine whenever you feel the urge to urinate and there are some times when you can’t control the trickling of urine.

A physical exam including a urine test and a description of your symptoms is usually sufficient to help our experts at Collin County Urology come up with a diagnosis as well as a treatment plan in managing your urinary incontinence.  We do understand how difficult it is to deal with this condition, so rest assured that we are here to help.
