Incontinence in men: causes and solutions

Urinary incontinence, the involuntary loss of urine, is a widespread problem that affects millions of people worldwide.

While women are more frequently affected by bladder weakness, many men also suffer from incontinence over the course of their lives.

The causes of incontinence in men are varied and can range from prostate diseases to neurological disorders to surgery.

In this blog post we look at the three most common causes of incontinence in men:

1. Prostate-related incontinence:

The prostate, also called the prostate gland, plays an important role in bladder control.

Diseases of the prostate, such as prostate enlargement (prostatic hyperplasia) or prostate cancer, can affect the urethra and lead to incontinence.


  • Weak urine stream
  • Interrupted urination
  • Frequent urination, especially at night
  • Urgency to urinate
  • Involuntary loss of urine


  • Depending on the cause of the prostate disease, various treatment approaches may be possible, such as drug treatment, surgery or minimally invasive procedures.
  • In cases of mild incontinence, pelvic floor exercises and aids such as pads or liners can also help.

2. Neurogenic incontinence:

The nerves that control the bladder and urethra can be damaged by various diseases or injuries.

This leads to neurogenic incontinence, in which the affected person loses control of his or her bladder.


  • Spinal cord injuries
  • multiple sclerosis
  • stroke
  • Brain tumors
  • diabetes


  • Involuntary loss of urine
  • Urinary retention
  • Urge incontinence
  • Overflow incontinence


  • Treatment of neurogenic incontinence depends on the underlying cause.
  • In some cases, medication or surgery may help.
  • In cases of severe impairment, a bladder catheter may be necessary.
  • Pelvic floor exercises and aids can alleviate the symptoms.

3. Incontinence after surgery:

Surgery in the pelvic, urethral or bladder area can cause damage to nerves or muscles that affect bladder control.

This can lead to incontinence after surgery.


  • Prostate surgery
  • Bladder surgery
  • Urethral surgery
  • Operations on the pelvic organs


  • Involuntary loss of urine
  • Urinary retention
  • Urge incontinence
  • Overflow incontinence


  • Treatment of incontinence after surgery depends on the type of surgery and the extent of the impairment.
  • In many cases, incontinence heals itself over time.
  • If incontinence persists, pelvic floor exercises, aids or, in some cases, surgery can help.

In summary, incontinence in men has many causes and can be treated with different therapeutic approaches.

It is important that you consult a doctor if you have incontinence problems to determine the cause and receive the correct treatment.
