Urinary incontinence in men: What causes?

One of the most common urinary system abnormalities is frequent urination. Urinary incontinence in men has many causes, maybe just a common infection, but there is still the potential for cancer.

1. What is urinary incontinence in men?

Urinary incontinence in men is a symptom of a sudden blockage of the urine stream. Although the patient pushes hard, the urine stream comes out very little, little by little. Besides the need to urinate, there are also accompanying symptoms such as:
Frequent urination, urinating many times a day (can be up to more than 10 times) Painful urination: pain when urinating, cramping pain along the way of the urethra. Pain and tightness in the abdomen below the navel. Burning, burning sensation in the urinary tract. Decreased libido or ejaculation disorders such as premature ejaculation.

2. Causes of urinary frequency in men

2.1 Urinary tract infections

Men's risk of UTIs is much lower than women's, but this is the most common cause of urinary incontinence in men.
For young men in their 20s and 30s, the cause of urinary tract infections is bacterial infections (especially sexually transmitted diseases), causing frequent urination with other disorders such as: burning sensation, itching, and loss of bladder control. In men over the age of 50, UTIs are usually not caused by frequent urination, but are related to problems with the prostate or bladder.

2.2 Prostate fibroids

Prostate cancer is the most common cause of urinary frequency in older men. This fibroid presses on the bladder, puts pressure on it, and leads to problems in removing urine from the bladder and leading to frequent urination.
If prostate cancer is left untreated, it also increases the risk of UTI in the long term. The mechanism is that urine stagnation in the bladder for a long time will change the chemical composition, increase the risk of bacteria growth and lead to UTIs.

2.3 Kidney stones

Kidney stones can occur in both the elderly and the young. The stones are a factor that increases the risk of infection with bacteria that live in the stones, and at the same time, stones also cause urinary retention and increase the possibility of infection. It is the infection after the stone that will cause urinary frequency in men.

2.4 Bladder cancer

Abnormalities in the bladder can also be a cause of urinary frequency in men. These abnormalities can be benign tumors or bladder cancer. Symptoms often include frequent urination with pain in the bladder or pelvic area.

2.5 Prostate cancer

Although prostate cancer often has no symptoms, frequent urination can also be caused by prostate cancer. When experiencing disorders related to the urinary system, it is necessary to go to the doctor early to detect the disease in time and treat it at an early stage.

2.6 Feelings of anxiety

Urinary incontinence in men is sometimes also due to psychological causes such as stress or excessive anxiety. These psychological disorders cause fluctuations in hormones in the body, leading to physiological, psychological and emotional changes. At that time, the body will react strongly to get rid of the waste products as quickly as possible and lead to frequent urination.

3. How to treat urinary incontinence in men

Treatments for urinary incontinence in men are usually antidepressants or CNS depressants. These active substances have a bladder-relaxing effect (such as oxybutynin, darifenacin or duloxetine) by inhibiting serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake activity, enhancing central nervous system control of the bladder sphincter. However, the effects of these drugs are temporary and are usually short-term.
The most important thing is still to address the causes of urinary frequency, such as using antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs when urinary tract infections or surgery when there are kidney stones, prostate fibroids when necessary..
