Prostate weighting over 500g, commonly observed in men above the age of fifty, characterizes Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Our hospital received a referral for a 70-year-old man who was experiencing urinary frequency. Diagnostic tests revealed that his total prostate-specific antigen level was 10.9 ng/mL and the size of his prostate measured at 250 mL via transrectal ultrasound. To remedy the situation, he underwent simple prostatectomy wherein doctors extracted an enormous adenoma weighing in at 570g through open retropubic procedure-this falls under “Giant BPH,”.
