Prostate - Conclusion

aging pages edited urology walsh

Aging in the male is intimately associated with both malignant and benign pathologic changes in the prostate. These diseases both increase in incidence with aging. It is estimated that almost 50 percent of men will develop symptoms of BPH in their lifetimes. Fortunately, current medical and surgical options offer good resolution of symptoms. Up to 11 percent of men will develop clinically significant prostate cancer during their lifetimes. However, current treatment options associated with early diagnosis, along with the slow growth of prostate cancers, mean that most men die of illnesses other than prostate cancer.
