Please add up your total score and write it here:

The results from this questionnaire will help your doctor to assess if you have an enlarged prostate. This is a common and benign (non-cancerous) condition that often occurs in older men. (The results do not help to diagnose prostate cancer). In general, a score of:

  • 0-8 indicates mild symptoms
  • 8-19 indicates moderate symptoms
  • 20-35 indicates severe symptoms.
See your doctor to discuss the results if your score indicates moderate or severe symptoms.
