Abstract

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in men refer to any combination of urinary symptoms. Many men experience lower urinary tract symptoms and the prevalence of these symptoms increases with age. Men with LUTS often experience urinary incontinence or overactive bladder symptoms. LUTS in men have significant detrimental effects on health-related quality of life, although symptoms are rarely health- or life-threatening. This article reviews the overlap of symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia and overactive in bladder in men and discusses the currently recommended therapeutic options.
