What is incontinence and what causes it?
Incontinence is the loss of urine or feces against our will. It is a common problem that affects both men and women of all ages and can have various causes and a varied effect on quality of life.
The causes of incontinence range from ageing and labour to genetic abnormalities, surgery, pelvic trauma and injury, neurological diseases, infections and bladder infections.
Incontinence usually has a treatable cause; nowadays this cause can be isolated in most cases, if it is promptly diagnosed with the help of specialist doctors and special treatments.
