Female urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, resulting in the accidental loss of urine. Due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and the structure of the female urinary tract, women are twice as likely as men to suffer from urinary incontinence. While urinary incontinence might be only slightly bothersome for some, it can be totally debilitating for others. For some women, the chance of embarrassment keeps them from enjoying many physical activities, including exercising. But, the good news is that effective treatments are available for treating urinary incontinence if women are willing to discuss it with their health care provider.

On this week's Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Deborah Lightner, a Mayo Clinic urologist, will discuss options for preventing and treating urinary incontinence. Also on the program, Dr. James Naessens, a researcher at the Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery, will share findings on the importance of getting a second opinion. And Dr. Juan Brito Campana, a Mayo Clinic endocrinologist, will explain why thyroid medications may be overprescribed in older adults

Bogus Cancer Treatments

Recently, the FDA issued warning letters to 14 companies that it says illegally sell products that fraudulently claim to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure cancer. The FDA calls it ďcruel deceptionĒ in that these companies target desperate consumers.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Timothy Moynihan, an oncologist at Mayo Clinic, will explain the FDA crackdown and discuss common cancer myths. Also on the program, Dr. Elizabeth Cozine, a primary care physician at Mayo Clinic, will cover primary care topics, including ear infections, HPV and the whooping cough vaccine for pregnant women.
