About Urinary Incontinence
Incontinence signals a change in the body's function. In some cases, it is the result of natural changes that occur over time such as the weakening of pelvic muscles in women or the enlargement of the prostate gland in men. In other cases, it's a result of injury or an indication of a more serious problem.
