How Severe Are My Symptoms?
The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) questionnaire was developed to measure how severe your BPH symptoms are. This quiz is not meant to provide medical advice or replace your doctor's expert opinion and care. Only your doctor can diagnose whether you have BPH and assess your individual condition. There are other conditions that can cause urinary symptoms besides BPH.
