The article discusses the advancement in the medical management of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men. The results from the Medical Therapy of Prostatic Symptoms found that the use of doxazosin in combination with finasteride slowed down the clinical progression of BPH, particularly in high-risks group. In addition, the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial showed that the finasteride therapy improved the urinary infections of patients and reduced the risk of prostate cancer.
