March 16, 2009 -- Question: Will I have urinary incontinence after cryosurgery?

Answer: The general risk of leakage of urine, which includes a single drop of leakage, after cryosurgery is between zero and four percent. In most of the recent literature, it's zero to 2.4 percent. So it's traditionally very small risk in the right hands.
