Lower urinary tract symptoms in men: management
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence
In men, the most common cause of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is benign prostate enlargement (BPE), which obstructs the bladder outlet. Other conditions that can cause LUTS include detrusor muscle weakness or overactivity, prostate inflammation (prostatitis), urinary tract infection, prostate cancer, and neurological disease.
This updated NICE guideline summary provides recommendations on initial assessment, conservative management, and drug treatment.
