Relevance to General Practice

Male urinary incontinence adversely affects health-related quality of life and is associated with significant psychosexual and financial burden. 
Lower urinary tract dysfunction, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), overactive bladder (OAB) and urinary incontinence, are common conditions that adversely affect health-related quality of life. Management of men with urinary incontinence requires careful evaluation, with comprehensive history-taking, focused physical examination and basic investigations to identify the underlying pathology, and should be tailored to the individual patient. 
Management involves a frank discussion about the various treatment options and the patient’s expectations, before selecting the most appropriate treatment.
