Prostate Symptoms Online Tests

There are two most common internationally acknowledged prostate self assessment tests: 


International Prostate Symptom Score (I-PSS)

Designed to help men determine how bothersome their urinary symptoms are as relates to Enlarged Prostate (BPH) and to check how effective their treatment is. The I-PSS is based on the answers to seven questions concerning urinary symptoms and one question concerning quality of life. Each question concerning urinary symptoms allows the patient to choose one out of six answers indicating increasing severity of the particular symptom. The answers are assigned points from 0 to 5. The total score can therefore range from 0 to 35 (asymptomatic to very symptomatic).
