EFFECT OF ANTHROPOMETRIC MEASUREMENTS AND PERSONAL DATA PARAMETERS ON BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA AND CARCINOMA PROSTATE
AbstractBackground: With advancing age the chances of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and carcinomaprostate (CaP) increases. Although previous studies on physical parameters and personal dataparameters have shown the positive associations between BMI, family history, and marital status butthey have not seen the effect of occupation and socioeconomic status on BPH and CaP. Theobjective of the present study was to see the effects of anthropometric measurements and personalhistory parameters on BPH and CaP in our community. Methods: Ninety-three willing subjects fromthe outpatient department of Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplant (SIUT) were selected for thestudy. Height and weight were measured, BMI calculated and personal data information, i.e.,occupation, marital status, smoking history, family history and socioeconomic history were recorded.Data were analysed for association of various parameters with BPH and CaP. Results: Significantassociation between weight, BMI and skilled labourers was found when normal were compared withBPH cases. Conclusion: No significant association between other parameters and BPH, CaP caseswas found, except weight, BMI and skilled labour. Body weight should be managed well as it canlead to both cardiovascular as well as prostatic diseases.Keywords: Body mass index, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, CaP, Carcinoma prostate
