Interactive Tool: How Bad Are Your Urinary Symptoms From Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)?
What does your score mean?
Your score gives you an idea of how bad your symptoms are. It will fall into one of these ranges:
- Mild (0 to 7)
- Moderate (8 to 19)
- Severe (20 to 35)
By itself, your score does not mean that you do or do not need treatment. But it is a useful way for you and your doctor to look at and talk about your symptoms and watch them over time.
Men differ in how bothered they are by urination problems. One man may not be troubled by his symptoms at all, and another man-with the same score-may feel that his symptoms are having a big impact on his life.
