How to Treat quiz: Benign prostatic hyperplasia

Relevance to General Practice

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are a common reason for men to present for GP review. Uncomplicated LUTS and minimal bother warrant an initial conservative approach. Men with more bothersome symptoms can be initially managed with an alpha-adrenoceptor antagonist, while an additional 5-ARI can be considered for men with larger prostates. Surgery is recommended for men who are bothered by symptoms and fail to respond to medical management or have complications such as hydronephrosis, recurrent UTIs, progressive deterioration of residual volume, macroscopic haematuria or poor maximum flow rate.
