There is no clear relationship between BPE, BPO, and LUTS; therefore, each component of the BPH-disease has to be separately evaluated and quantified

The diagnostic workup has to exclude other causes of prostatic enlargement, bladder outlet obstruction, and LUTS

BPH-associated complications should be detected at baseline

Assessment of BPH includes recommended and optional tests. After baseline investigation, the physician should be able to determine if and how the patient should be treated.
