What does this tool do?

Interactive health icon

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.
