Description

Healthy Bladder & Bowels

If you or someone you care for experiences bladder or bowel control problems, you’re not alone. In fact, over 5 million Australians experience bladder or bowel control problems*.

Healthy bladder and bowel habits can help you avoid bladder and bowel control problems such as incontinence. In many cases, incontinence can be prevented by adopting healthy diet and lifestyle habits*.

Hear from Urologist, Mr Alwin Tan, to learn more about bladder health, incontinence risk factors and the treatment and management of incontinence. Mr Tilan Beneragama, Colorectal Surgeon (Bowel), will present facts about bowel cancer, including symptoms to look out for and easy steps people can take to help protect themselves against the disease.
