Abstract: Background and objectives Study of prostatic lesions has gained more importance because development of prostatic hyperplasia is an almost universal phenomenon in ageing men that account for considerable morbidity. Inflammatory conditions need correct diagnosis as they can be treated with antibiotics. Methods 295 cases of non-malignant prostatic lesions were included in the present study and were grouped into inflammatory conditions and benign lesions. Results Most of the patients were in sixth decade. The most common lesion encountered was nodular hyperplasia followed by nodular hyperplasia with prostatitis. Interpretation and conclusion Nodular hyperplasia was the common lesion encountered. Associated lesions like chronic nonspecific prostatitis, basal cell hyperplasia and prostatic abscesses were also encountered.

Keywords: Basal cell hyperplasia, chronic non -specific prostatitis, nodular hyperplasia, prostatic abscesses, prostatic hyperplasia
