Abstract: 

Background: The main objective of this study was to determine the association of abnormal urologic symptoms and prostate specific antigen (PSA) in outpatients in urology clinic and controls.

Materials & Methods: In this case control study, 240 men over 50 year of age, was studied. Cases including 120 outpatients in urology clinic at Clinical Hospital in Shahrekord and controls including 120 non patients, entered to our study. Urologic symptoms were assessed by using American Urological Association (AUA) symptom index in the patients. PSA was measured as well. Two groups were matched as age, marital status, history of cancer, but not by cigarette smoking, history of benign prostate hyper trophy and vasectomy.

Results: Abnormal symptoms was seen in 61 patients (50.8%) in case group and 41 patients (34.2%) in control group (p<0.009). 21 patients (17.5%) in case group and 10 patients (8.3%) in control group had PSA>4 ng/ml (p=0.034).

Conclusion: This study showed that abnormal PSA was associated with abnormal symptoms in case group, but not in control group. The results remind the benefit of Screening by PSA in normal populations, where can detect asymptomatic patients with increased PSA.
