More and more patients will require treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in the future because of the increase in overall life expectancy. Management of LUTS/benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) and the management of medical and surgical options will require a clear understanding of all treatment, as well as shared decision-making between the provider and patient.
