A common treatment for prostate cancer is removal of the prostate. A common concern for men who undergo that surgery is that they may have some bladder control problems later. But many don't realize there is treatment for that too. If medication doesn't work, there is a mesh sling for men that can be implanted to control bladder leakage.
"Typically, we talk about in terms of leaking how many pads a day do you soak. For patients who have two to three pads a day of incontinence the sling works very well. It's about 90 percent successful. It's remarkable," says Dr. Kenneth Benson, a Urologist.
Dr. Benson says the sling for men isn't new, but a lot of men are too embarrassed to ask, unaware that this procedure is available now.
