    Urinary incontinenceThe involuntary passage of urine or faeces. is defined as the involuntary and uncontrollable leakage of urine in varying amounts either during the day, at night, or both. It is a fairly common problem and often it is either ignored or not pursued as it is felt that with time the problem will disappear. However, persistent urinary incontinence beyond the age of five years usually warrants investigation as it can be very distressing for both the child and family. It is important to have the problem assessed and to decide on directed treatment based on the underlying cause. The investigations are largely non-invasiveAny test or technique that does not involve penetration of the skin. The term 'non-invasive' may also describe tumours that do not invade surrounding tissues. and painless and both the child and the family should feel supported while they await a resolution of the problem.
