International Prostate Symptom score (IPSS)

What is the IPSS score?

The IPSS questionnaire allows your GP to better understand the severity of your water work symptoms. It is used for men who are having problems that are likely to be related to an enlarged prostate. It is helpful in determining which treatment option is best for you and then monitoring any improvement.

What does it involve?

There are 7 questions relating to different symptoms you might be experiencing and one question relating to your overall quality of life.

Once you have scored each question the values are added together to give an indication of the severity of your symptoms.

Please complete the form and bring it with you to your appointment. IPSS Form
