According to Internal Medicine News, men under than the age of 55 who have served in the U.S. armed forces are almost three times more likely to report urinary incontinence than their nonmilitary peers. Their incontinence could be caused by anything from posttraumatic stress disorder to a physical injury they sustained while on duty. For example, brain injury is a major cause of incontinence. If you lose the ability to control the part of your brain which controls the urge to pass urine, the end result could be an overactive bladder. No matter the cause, however, the results can be somewhat embarrassing.
The concerns over embarrassment, privacy, how they will be viewed by peers and damage to career potential are some of the many reasons why men may never even mention they are having issues after serving in the armed forces.
