Men can become incontinent after an illness or injury, or when an enlarged prostate gland blocks the regular flow of urine from the bladder. Like women, men can often get relief with bladder retraining, lifestyle changes, and Kegels.
Medications can help relax or shrink the prostate if that's the problem. Your doctor may also suggest surgery, like artificial sphincters or male slings, which support the urethra and keep it closed when necessary. Another type of surgery known as TURP can help by scraping away excess prostate tissue that is blocking the flow of urine.
