Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

Recently, compared to the past, various social environmental changes, such as rapid increase in the elderly population, development of medical diagnosis methods, provision of various medical information through the media, increased desire for the improved quality of life due to economic growth and improved the standard of living, increased awareness of securing health rights, and so forth, have been rapidly enhancing the importance of interest in and management of benign prostatic hyperplasia.

It could be said that understanding the influencing factors of benign prostatic hyperplasia on the patient's overall health-related life quality would be a very important part for maintaining an optimal health condition of the patient with benign prostatic hyperplasia.

In recent clinical diagnoses, the importance of quality of life related to health has been emphasized. What we call the ‘health-related quality of life’ refers to the part that is directly involved in individual health among the elements composed of the quality of life, which is a concept of the physical, emotional, and social aspects of the quality of life affected by an illness or treatment.

Furthermore, it is a significant variable indicating individual subjective evaluation and satisfaction with respect to the overall situation or life and experience of the current health-related life.

The main objective of this Special Issue is to advance the fields of HRQOL and BPH. To this end, we would like to invite state-of-the-art reviews, including reviews of new technology and therapeutics, as well as original research in this field for inclusion in this issue.
