History

The most common presentation includes obstructive voiding symptoms, urinary retention, or urinary tract infections. Obstructive voiding symptoms are characterized by a decreased force of stream, incomplete emptying of the bladder, urinary terminal dribbling, and urinary intermittency. These symptoms are progressive in many patients.
