Prostate Cancer Risks


The American Urological Association (AUA) has drafted a simple symptom index to help categorize enlarged prostate symptoms. It contains seven questions intended to classify the severity of your enlarged prostate symptoms. The following is a unique interactive series of questions that will help you determine the severity of your urinating problems. After you answer these seven questions, your score will be calculated immediately, and you will be given a brief interpretation of the score. REMEMBER, your individual score must be interpreted with care. We recommend that you contact your health care provider for any questions that you have. These seven questions were compiled by a group of urologists. It is known as the Symptom Score Index and is used by urologists around the country and by members of the AUA to quantify a man's urinary symptoms. Select the response for each question that most closely corresponds to your recent experiences. To mark your response, click on the button in the column which describes your symptom. Less than 1 time in 5.

Please answer all the Question. Unanswered Questions will be highlighted in RED background.
