Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition among men from middle-age onwards. Left untreated BPH can lead to urinary tract infection, urinary bladder stones or obstructive uropathy (renal failure). This project will involve analysis of 45 and Up Study baseline questionnaire data to examine the relationships between demographic, lifestyle and health factors and outcome measures for BPH, such as the International Prostate Symptom Score, or a diagnosis of benign prostate hyperplasia.
