Urinary Incontinence - Diagnosis

At Dr Batra’s™, female patients who feel hesitant or embarrassed to discuss these problems with a male doctor may request for a female doctor; similarly, male patients may request for a male doctor.

Following are the steps to diagnose urinary incontinence:

  • Our doctors will ask the patient questions pertaining to urinary incontinence, including any emotional or social embarrassment that the condition might be causing.
  • The doctors will perform a medical assessment and clinical examination to understand the condition’s progress.
  • They will understand the diagnosis, prognosis and outcome of the condition.
  • They will plan treatment as per the stage of the disease.
  • The patient may be asked to identify any associated illnesses.
  • In case of doubts, a second opinion may be advised.
