Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a nonmalignant, age-related condition that affects most men who enjoy a long life. The diagnosis of BPH is generally straightforward and easily established. At the present time, transurethral resection of the prostate is considered the best mode of therapy for symptomatic BPH requiring active intervention. However, since people are likely to avoid surgery when provided a reasonable alternative, it is likely that pharmacologic treatments will be tried with increasing frequency.
