Prostate issues are a common cause of male incontinence symptoms. An enlarged prostate, known as Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH), is more common among older men and BPH can cause varying levels and types of male incontinence. In the video below, Dr. Ryan Barnes from Virginia Urology in Richmond, Virginia talks about BPH, its symptoms, what causes it and how it is treated.

Prostate issues are a common cause of male incontinence symptoms. 

Urinary incontinence after prostatectomy is common among many men undergoing radical or even robotic prostatectomy to remove a cancerous prostate.  Male incontinence symptoms after prostatectomy may last for a few days, a few weeks, a few months, or even much longer. There are many non-surgical and surgical options available to treat long term male incontinence, but sometimes effective management of male incontinence with external collection systems such as Afex afford the best option for some men.

The prostate gland sits just below the bladder and completely encircles the urethra at the point where it leaves the bladder. When the prostate gland is removed in a radical prostatectomy or receives radiation therapy, damage can occur to the urinary sphincter. Depending on the extent of the damage, temporary or permanent incontinence can result. Following radical prostatectomy, the prevalence of incontinence at 1 month after surgery is high, ranging from 4% to 87%. However, UI tends to diminish over time, and recovery is observed in most cases in 1 to 6 months following surgery.

Stress incontinence, urine leakage with activity, is the most common type of incontinence after prostate surgery. It is usually caused by a weak or damaged urinary sphincter and results in urine leakage when you do anything that strains or stresses the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. Leakage may range from mild (a few drops with only the most vigorous activity) to brisk (leakage with almost any movement). Stress incontinence resolves in up to 97 percent of men affected after radical retro pubic prostatectomy, but can take up to three years to resolve.
