Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) consist of a common set of urologic symptoms that can affect the elderly. The prevalence of LUTS is expected to rise owing to the continued increase of numbers of the elderly. Although benign prostatic hyperplasia is considered a common cause of LUTS, the broader potential causes of LUTS are myriad. A wide range of diagnostic modalities and treatments are available to manage patients with LUTS and their utilization should not be limited to the urologist.
