Incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine or feces. Urinary incontinence means losing control of the bladder. In some cases it results in a total loss of the bladder’s contents and in other cases, it merely causes a small leakage. Incontinence is not a disease, but a symptom.
In addition to the distinction between fecal incontinence and urinary incontinence, there are different types of incontinence. What the different types of incontinence have in common is that in most cases something can be done about it. Consulting a doctor in time is very important
There are many causes of urinary incontinence. Overall they cover physical damage, aging, cancer, infections and so on. Some conditions are temporary, while others are more permanent.
The above are only examples! Always seek diagnosis and treatment advice from your General Practitioner, if you experience incontinence.
