The condition is often ignored after the patient has been fully investigated and more serious causes for bleeding excluded and treatment is often withheld unless the bleeding becomes excessive. We analysed the clinical effect of finasteride in the treatment of this condition. We retrospectively reviewed 42 patients diagnosed as having haematuria secondary to bleeding from a benign prostate.
