The prostatic cysts are uncommon lesions usually detected incidentally. The incidence is reported as less than 1% most often occurs as small & asymptomatic lesions located medially in the gland, when they get a big size causes different lower urinary tract symptoms. Only 5% are symptomatic. The symptoms depend on the size & location of the lesion. Minimal access surgery (endoscopic) is recommended for its treatment.
