Take A Quiz To Determine If You Need Treatment

Here are some good questions to ask yourself, or if you are a woman checking this out for your partner, quiz him with these questions. Rate each question with the following points: Not at all=0, Less than 1 time in 5=1, Less than half the time=2, about half the time=3, more than half the time=4, almost always=5.

  1. Over the past month, how often have you had a sensation of not emptying out your bladder completely after you finished urinating?
  2. Over the past month, how often have you had to urinate again less than two hours after you finished urinating?
  3. Over the past month, how often have you found you stopped and started again several times when you urinated?
  4. Over the past month, how often have you found it difficult to postpone urination?
  5. Over the past month, how often have you had a weak urinary stream?
  6. Over the past month, how often have you had to push or strain to begin urination?
  7. Over the past month, how many times did you most typically get up to urinate from the time you went to bed at night until the time you got up in the morning?

If the score is under 8, prostate disease is mild and no real treatment is needed; a score of 8 to 17 indicates moderate disease and treatment can be done; a score over 18 is severe disease and treatment is most frequently surgery.
