Causes of male incontinence. The causes for this can vary widely. Studies indicate the number one cause of male incontinence is prostate problems. This can be a result of an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer. Many men experience incontinence after the surgical removal of the prostate to treat cancer. Other causes of male incontinence can include: head injury, spinal cord injury, neurological diseases, tumors (both cancerous and benign), infections, alcohol, medications and emotional illnesses. It is important to note while aging makes it more likely to experience incontinence it usually is not the sole reason for having symptoms of incontinence.
