Urinary Incontinence in Panama
Urinary incontinence is a loss of control of the bladder. In some cases, it may result in a total loss of the bladder’s contents or it may just cause minor leakage. The condition may be temporary or chronic, depending on its cause.
Incontinence can be a symptom of many different health problems, ranging from cancer to kidney stones to an enlarged prostate. It can also be a natural result of the aging process, since your bladder muscles become weaker as you get older.
Please contact Dr Urena for any instance of Urinary Incontinence in Panama. The condition interferes with your daily life, and can possibly be a symptom of a very serious condition.
Types of Urinary Incontinence in Panama
Urinary incontinence is divided into three different categories, or types. However, you may experience a mix of the types or all three.
Stress Incontinence in Panama
This type of incontinence may occur when you participate in some types of physical activity—such as when you are exercising, coughing, sneezing, or laughing. The activity causes the sphincter muscle, which normally holds your urine in the bladder, to weaken and release urine.
Urge Incontinence in Panama
Urge incontinence occurs when you feel a sudden and strong urge, or need, to urinate. Very soon after the urge strikes, you lose control of your bladder. Often, you do not have time between the urge and the loss of urine to make it to a bathroom.
Overflow Incontinence in Panama
This type occurs when you urinate but do not completely empty the bladder. Later, you may lose some urine. Overflow incontinence can also be called dribbling.
Causes of Urinary Incontinence
There are many causes of urinary incontinence—including physical damage, aging, cancer, infection, and neurological disorder. Some of these conditions will only result in temporary urinary problems and are easily treated, while others are more serious and persistent.
