Prostate inflammation is one of the factors that contribute to prostate growth. Serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) is an inflammatory marker that is often used to assess aggressiveness, but has a relatively high price. It takes an inexpensive parameter and can be calculated easily. The design of this cross-sectional analytic observational study to determine the relationship of neutrophil ratio of lymphocytes with inflammatory degrees and prostate aggressiveness. Using secondary data from June to November 2016 with a sample of 31 people with BPH undergoing TURP surgery procedures. The result of correlation analysis using spearman rank ratio of neutrophil lymphocyte with inflammatory degree (P = 0.969) and aggressiveness (P = 0.509) prostate was not significant. While there was a significant relationship between prostate volume (P = 0.002) and PSA (P = 0.022) to degree of aggressiveness of prostate. The ratio of lymphocyte neutrophils can not be used as a biomarker against inflammatory degrees and prostate aggressiveness. But PSA can be used only to know the degree of aggressiveness rather than the degree of prostate inflammation.
