Urinary incontinence is more of an all encompassing term. Basically any kind of incontinence that effects your ability to control when urine flows out of your body will fall into this category.
Sometimes when one is experiencing these sorts of problems they are symptoms of another issue altogether. This is why its important to get diagnosed as soon as possible. This way you can rule out things like cancer or an enlarged prostate.
Its quite common for folks to start losing more control as they get older due to atrophy of the muscles that control the bladder. Most people know this already and usually will use this for good joke material on their older friends. Ha ha.
What most people don't realize is that urinary incontinence is an issue that can effect all age groups, races and genders.
Due to this ignorance on the subject, it can be difficult for the youths and young adults out there who suffer from these issues. The youth of society aren't as understanding as our more mature and experienced elders.
Fortunately with age comes the understanding that people will have these kinds of issues and its really no big deal. Everyone pees themselves at some point in their life right?
Anyways, there may be some treatments available for you that might help you regain control. There are new advances being made all the time these days and the possibilty for successful treatments is continuously expanding.
