Aim:The focus of this thesis was to look at the link between character, depression, somatic symptoms, stress and lesser urinary tract indications of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Methods and Results:The International Urinary Illness Score, Health Status Questionnaire-9, PHQ-17, and 6-item Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale were used to assess LUTS individuals. People through depression (p=0.048) and somatization (p=0.025) had more significant LUTS/BPH symptoms. Neurotic individuals had higher stages of sadness, anxiety, also somatization (p=0.0058, p=0.005, and p=0.0096, individually). Individuals exhibiting strong extraversion had considerably lower levels of sadness (p=0.00482) in addition anxiety (p=0.035) than individuals through poor assertiveness.
Conclusion:The current preliminary findings imply that individuals experiencing LUTS may require thorough examination of psychological mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, and somatization. Extensive research having sufficient power and superior designs are required to validate the current preliminary results.
