Men who have benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with symptoms usually need some kind of treatment at some time. Despite many advances in the pharmacotherapy of BPH, the surgery remains the treatment of choice. The pathogenesis of BPH remains obscure even though some speculations are made. Although the need for treatment is not usually urgent, doctors generally advise going ahead with treatment once the problems become bothersome or present a health risk. There are different modalities of treatment available to manage BPH and the choice depends on the facilities available in a particular centre.
