Incontinence In Women And Other Urinary Symptoms, Explained By A Specialist
Incontinence In Women And Other Urinary Symptoms, Explained By A Specialist

Incontinence, nocturia, urine discolouration, and microscopic hematuria are common urinary symptoms that may point to different underlying conditions. Both male and female patients can suffer from these symptoms.

It is important not to pass these off as a normal part of aging or of life, and let urinary symptoms go unmanaged. Treatments and help for male and also female urinary conditions are available in Singapore.

Dr Shirley Bang, a urology specialist in Singapore, has recently responded to questions from DoctorxDentist readers relating to incontinence in women and other urination-related concerns. Here is what she shared.
