Other useful websites

Determine your own urinary symptom score

Ring the box relating to how frequently each urinary symptom has occurred over the last month. The total score of the seven questions will range between 0 to 35. Patients with a score of 0 have no urinary symptoms, those with 35 have many.

These symptoms are rarely related to prostate cancer but more commonly as to whether benign areas of the prostate gland are restricting and or affecting the function of the urinary tract.

The questionnaire is also known as the American Urological Association questionnaire, AUA7, and has been validated as providing an accurate assessment of a patient's urinary symptoms.

For ease of use you can download a printable version of this table (in Adobe Acrobat .PDF format) by selecting this link.
