The prostate is a Sexual gland present in men which contributes to Semen production. As men grow, Prostate may get enlarged and compress the urethra (urine passage).

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence occurs when bladder muscles don’t work as they should. Leaking the urine accidentally.

The condition can be treated by bladder control exercises lifestyle & dietary changes. Ask your doctor to inform you about the exercises that you could do yourself.

Medically, they could be treated with medications. Or other techniques like electric nerve stimulation (neuromodulation). Some cases with severe overactivity may need bladder Botox therapy.

If nothing else works, then the only option is surgery. In men, prostate surgery can reduce overactivity symptoms, while in women Continence procedures are helpful. Extreme cases with small bladder may need surgery to increase bladder size (augmentation).
