Male Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is an involuntary release of urine. In men, urinary incontinence can be a sign of a problem with the urinary tract, which includes two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, the urethra, and two sphincter muscles. Some men experience urinary incontinence as a short-term problem, while others live with it as a long-term (chronic) condition. Although it can happen more often in older men than in young men, it is not a normal part of aging. If you suffer from incontinence at any age, the urologists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona want you to know that this urological problem does not need to rule your life. We have a variety of treatment options available that can help you manage your incontinence and improve your overall well-being. We also diagnose and treat patients with other urology issues, such as male infertility and prostate cancer.

The Different Types of Urinary Incontinence Include:

  • Stress incontinence occurs when you cough, sneeze, laugh, or get up from a seated position. Male stress incontinence is prompted by physical movement or activity that puts pressure (stress) on your bladder, and is not related to psychological stress.
  • Urge incontinence happens when you can’t get to the bathroom in time. Male urge incontinence is a strong, sudden need to urinate and typically caused by abnormal bladder contractions.
  • Overflow incontinence arises when the proper urine flow is disrupted, leaving the bladder constantly full. Male overflow incontinence is generally caused by bladder damage, urethral blockage, nerve damage from diabetes, and prostate gland problems.

For some, the negative stigma associated with incontinence is worse than the physical condition itself. The embarrassment of having an accident in front of others can cause people who suffer from incontinence to restrict activities and limit social interactions. Over time, they can become isolated, and in some cases, this can lead to issues of depression. Life with urinary incontinence doesn’t have to be this way. With the right management techniques from Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona, this urological problem can be treated and frequently cured. Male incontinence treatment options include medications, Kegel exercises, male slings, condom catheters, penile clamps, artificial urinary sphincters, collagen injections, and incontinence undergarments.

So, if you experience urology issues associated with male incontinence, stop living a life in isolation and start regaining control by contacting the urologists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona. When it comes to male incontinence, infertility, prostate cancer, or any other type of urological condition, we offer effective treatments that not only provide symptomatic relief, but a better quality of life.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer in men. In fact, one in six men will receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer during their lifetime. When detected early, it is also one of the most treatable. If you have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, there are a number of therapy options available to you ranging from minimally invasive treatments, such as radiation, to state-of-the-art surgical procedures, like the da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy.
