Prostate Symptoms Self-Assessment

Prostate Sympotoms Self-Assessment

Find out how severe your prostate symptoms are and rate how much they trouble you using this self-assessment based on the International Prostate Symptom Score, a tool often used by doctors. Take your questionnaire results with you to your doctor to help discuss your symptoms.

This assessment is designed for men who have already been diagnosed with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH). As urinary symptoms can be caused by conditions other than an enlarged prostate, you should always see your doctor in the first instance if you have urinary difficulties.
