Bladder Control Problems (Incontinence)

When you lose control of your urine or have leaking, it’s called urinary incontinence. It’s common after treatment for prostate cancer, and also sometimes after treatment for other cancers.

  • Try Kegel exercises. Strengthen the muscles that control the flow of urine.

  • Take bathroom breaks often. Use the bathroom before bedtime or strenuous activity.
