Can't hold in your urine? You might be in trouble
Urinary incontinence - the uncontrolled leakage of urine- can hit young and older adults.
Dr Tan Yung Khan, a senior consultant urologist at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, emphasised the importance of seeking medical assistance early, as incontinence can severely impact a person's quality of life.
He told The New Paper: "As adult incontinence is also a symptom for bladder cancers, urinary tract infections and spinal cord injuries, getting diagnosed early allows the patient to detect those severe conditions before it deteriorates."
