This Health Quiz, called the Prostate Symptom Score, was developed by the American Urological Association to assess urinary voiding symptoms in men. Urinary symptoms may be an indication of an enlarged prostate, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. At the end of the quiz, your score is totaled and a course of action is suggested.

Once the questions are answered click "Analysis" to view your results.

If you have any questions contact your doctor or use Our Doctor Finder to find a urologist in your area.
