In brief: Depends on cause

Urinary incontinence in men can result from different things.
For instance, some men have leakage due to urinary retention leading to "overflow" incontience. Others may have overactive bladders causing urge incontience. Still others may have leakage results from surgery. Only a healthcare provider can help you determine what type of incontinence you have and how best to treat it.

Some men can respond to mediaction, others may even require a mechanical device. I suggest visiting an urologist.

If the problem occurs after prostate cancer surgery, a artificial urinary sphincter may be helpful. I would like to refer you to an article I wrote on this topic: http://www.neilbaum.com/post-prostatectomy-incontinence-the-problems-and-solutions.html

In brief: Male incontinence

Depends on the cause.
Should have a proper urologic work up to include cystoscopy and possibly urodynamics.
