Abstract

Urinary incontinence is a common but underrecognised problem in men. A systematic approach can aid in the diagnosis and management of these patients, including when to refer them for specialist input.

Article Extract

Urinary incontinence is a common problem among Australian men, affecting about one million men, and increases in prevalence with age. Up to one in four men aged over 70 years experience this condition, which can significantly affect their quality of life.1 However, uncertainties regarding diagnosis often result in a delay in appropriate management.
