About the IPSS Test

The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS)

The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) 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.



Question 1

Incomplete emptying

Question 2


Question 3


Question 4


Question 5

Weak Stream

Question 6


Question 7


Question 8:

The 8th question refers 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. The total score can therefore range from 0 to 35.

The International Scientific Committee (SCI), under the patronage of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Union Against Cancer (UICC), recommends the use of only a single question to assess the quality of life. The answers to this question range from ‘delighted’ to ‘terrible’ or 0 to 6. Although this single question may or may not capture the global impact of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) Symptoms of quality of life, it may serve as a valuable starting point for doctor-patient conversation.
