This tool asks about
your urinary symptoms from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and gives you a
score based on how severe your symptoms are. BPH is an enlarged
prostate gland. As the prostate gets bigger, it may
cause problems urinating. Your score on this tool may help you think about if
and how you want to treat the problem.
If you are already being
treated for BPH, the tool can also help you and your doctor tell how well
treatment is working.
The tool is based on the American Urological
Association (AUA) Symptom Index.1 The index is also
called the International Prostate Symptom Score.
