This study examined urinary incontinence and its possible risk factors in men living in Uyo Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. The study adopted a cross-sectional survey design and a questionnaire was developed and used as the major source of data collection. Sample of 320 men were randomly selected by simple random sampling and data were analyzed using frequency and percentage distribution, chi-square test, univariate and multiple logistic regression. Results of chi-square revealed a significant association (p <0.05) between marital status and incontinence. The findings of this study have proven that urinary incontinence occurs as age increases.
