Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is present in as many as 60% of men in their 60s and 90% of men older than 70 years. BPH describes nonmalignant prostate tissue growth and commonly causes lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Not all men with BPH have LUTS, however, and not all men with LUTS have BPH.

Are you familiar with key aspects of BPH presentation and recommendations for screening, diagnosis, and treatment?
