Prostate disease (ICD: N40-N42)

Prostate diseases range from prostate cancer (carcinoma of the prostate), which mainly occurs in the outer zone of the prostate gland, via prostate enlargement to prostate inflammation (prostatitis). Prostate enlargement (benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH = benign prostate syndrome, BPS), which starts at around the age of 30 years, is understood as age-related, benign growth of the prostate gland. A benign prostate enlargement can be detected In around 50% of men over the age of 50 years and in almost all men over the age of 80 years, but only 10 to 20% of them need to undergo treatment due to actual symptoms. Early medical treatment of urinary tract infections and good bodily hygiene can prevent prostate inflammation.
