ALPHA BLOCKER TO PROSTATECTOMY: A PATIENT WITH BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA; A CASE REPORT

Abstract

Introduction: The prostate gland undergoes many changes during the course of a man's life. At birth, the prostate is about the size of a pea. It grows only slightly until puberty and then begins to enlarge rapidly, attaining normal adult size and shape, about that of a walnut, when a man reaches his early 20s. The gland generally remains stable until about the mid-40s. However after this age, the prostate begins to enlarge again sometimes due to a cause not fully understood through an abnormal process of cell multiplication giving rise to a medical condition known as BPH. Case presentation: We report the case of 66-year-old Asian man experiencing lower urinary tract symptoms which was not initially diagnosed for BPH and remained under treatment for next 3 weeks. During this period, he switched to different physicians and diverse types of lab tests were conducted but actual cause couldn’t be exposed. The misdiagnosis by numerous therapists and continuous negligence made the condition to grow gradually. When symptoms severity amplified, patient had to consult an urologist who diagnosed the condition as BPH. The disease that could’ve been easily treated at an early staged with proper medical care, required prostatectomy then for its treatment. Conclusion: Not all cases of BPH are diagnosed and taken care at its initial stages. Our report emphasizes the hidden danger of disease being proliferate in such cases. The need for a good clinical evaluation by a qualified therapist and the use of appropriate investigative studies is mandatory in order to avoid unnecessary medications, operations and complications.
