Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the uncontrolled leakage of urine from the bladder. The amount of urine leakage varies from child to child, as does the time of day when it occurs. This information sheet from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains the causes, symptoms and treatment options for urinary incontinence – also referred to as enuresis if it occurs at night-time – and where to get help.

Urethral stricture

Urethral stricture is a narrowing of part, or all of, the urethra (the tube that carries urine outside the body from the bladder). Depending on the location and length of the stricture, it can affect a child’s ability to pass urine, either reducing the rate of flow or blocking the flow altogether.
