Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a nonmalignant condition in which the aging prostate undergoes alterations in consistency and/or size in men over 50 years of age. Normal prostate size does not rule out BPH, just as the degree of enlargement does not determine the severity of symptoms. The presenting symptom is usually dysuria. Based on the severity of symptoms and the possible medical complications, the disease can have a significant impact on the patient's quality of life and health status. Different general approaches are currently available for management of BPH. These include watchful waiting, medical therapy, and surgical interventions (Mosier, 1998).
