LUTS is a common problem in aging men even in absence of BPH with negative impact on quality of life

Age-related changes, e.g. in the bladder, the kidney or the testosterone level can cause LUTS

Neurological, cardiovascular or endocrine diseases as well as malignancy and infections can evoke LUTS

LUTS has negative impact on patients’ QoL and healthcare system costs, therefore its treatment needs a more integrative approach.
