The association between asthma and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has rarely been explored. We investigated whether male asthmatic patients had an increased risk of BPH by conducting this retrospective nationwide population-based study.
Previous studies suggested an association between atopic conditions and specific cancers. The results on the association with urothelial bladder cancer (UBC) are scarce and inconsistent. To evaluate the association between asthma and risk of UBC, we considered 936 cases and 1022 controls from the Spanish Bladder Cancer/EPICURO Study (86% males, mean age 65.
Although asthma and bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC) are considered to share similar pathophysiological pathways, the relationship between asthma and BPS/IC is uncertain. This case-control study aimed to investigate the relationship between prior asthma and BPS/IC using a large database in Taiwan.
The prevalence of urinary stone disease (USD) and asthma is rising and has recently been associated in a pediatric population.
To investigate the association between asthma and USD in a nationally representative adult population.
Painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis (PBS/IC) is a chronic condition characterized by pelvic pain, urinary frequency, and urgency for more than six months in the absence of urinary tract infections.
Neuromodulation, including cavernous nerve stimulation, gastric electrical stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and vagus nerve stimulation, has been used with success in treating several functional disease conditions.
The need for the development of new cancer therapies and push for the design of new targeting techniques is on the rise, and would be useful for cancers that are resistant to current drug treatments.
We explored the association between asthma severity and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) using the International Prostate Symptom Score in a population-based study of males (aged ≥19 years) and evaluated voiding and urine storage symptoms.
