“Men diagnosed with prostate cancer are still not thoroughly informed about urinary incontinence as a consequence of surgery prior to undergoing the procedure,”complains Dr. Stephan Neubauer, Urologist at the West German Prostate Center. Many men are affected by the involuntary loss of urine despite more advanced surgical techniques. However, details of the actual incidence are still incomplete. "For example the statistical numbers for urinary incontinence often differ vastly depending on the type of study they were derived from, e.g., how and when they were determined. Usually these numbers are far removed from realty," says Dr. Neubauer.
