Our results demonstrate that curcumin combined with tamsulosin and finasteride can effectively improve LUTS and the QoL in BPH patients, with good safety and tolerance characteristics. In addition, curcumin combined with tamsulosin and finasteride has more beneficial effects in reducing PPFT, protecting erectile function, and improving urinary retention symptoms and QoL scores in BPH patients compared with tamsulosin and finasteride alone. However, further larger multicenter clinical studies are warranted to confirm the efficacy and beneficial effects of curcumin in BPH patients.
