Abstract

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in men are related to problems with storage and voiding of urine and can occur after micturition. The many causes of LUTS include abnormalities or abnormal function of the bladder, prostate, urethra, or sphincters. The prevalence of LUTS increases as men get older, with about 30% of men aged 65 years and older having troublesome symptoms,1 which may require treatment. This article summarises the most recent recommendations from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on LUTS.
