Abstract

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in male patients. Symptoms

include urinary frequency, slow stream, urgency, and incomplete bladder emptying. This

condition can have a significant impact on quality of life. There are several treatment modalities

available for the management of BPH including watchful waiting, medications, minimally

invasive surgical interventions, and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). This paper

will review the pathophysiology, symptoms, medications, and surgical interventions available.
