• BPH Symptom Quiz


    The effects of BPH are often characterized by the physical symptoms, and there are many treatment options that treat these physical symptoms. The challenge with current options is that while they may provide symptom relief, they often force men to compromise.

    Take the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) quiz to measure how severe your symptoms are. This questionnaire is not a diagnosis, and is not designed to provide medical advice. If you are experiencing BPH symptoms, talk to your doctor.

    Score: 0-7 = Mild Symptoms, 8-19 = Moderate Symptoms, 20-35 = Severe Symptoms

All surgical treatments have inherent and associated side effects. The most common side effects are mild and transient and may include mild pain or difficulty when urinating, discomfort in the pelvis, blood in the urine, inability to empty the bladder or a frequent and/or urgent need to urinate, and bladder or urinary tract infection. Other risks include ejaculatory dysfunction and a low risk of injury to the urethra or rectum where the devices gain access to the body for treatment. For more information about potential side effects and risks associated with Aquablation therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) treatment, speak with your urologist or surgeon. No claim is made that the AquaBeam Robotic System will cure any medical condition, or entirely eliminate the diseased entity. Repeated treatment or alternative therapies may sometimes be required.
