Continence refers to the control of bladder and bowel movements and is an important aspect of quality of life [1]. Incontinence impacts a significant number of men in Australia, and various factors can contribute to its development. These include ageing, prostate problems, nerve damage, and other medical conditions [2]. To manage incontinence, multiple treatment options are available, including lifestyle changes, pelvic floor muscle exercises, medication, and in severe cases, surgery [2]. It is crucial for men to seek medical advice and treatment for incontinence to improve their quality of life [1].
