Abstract

Physicians commonly encounter disorders of the prostate in the primary care setting, where shared decision making for prostate cancer screening should also occur. Hence, it is important for physicians to understand and differentiate the diagnoses of prostate disease. Initial evaluation should include a thorough history, physical examination, laboratory examination and imaging, if necessary. This article aims to provide a diagnostic and management approach for prostate disease.
