Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Diagnosis

The diagnosis of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) needs a detailed medical record.

When assessing the symptoms and their intensity, it is very useful to fill in a validated clinical questionnaire, such as the IPSS (which consists of 8 questions in total), which will help to establish the clinical situation as accurately as possible.

During the physical exam it is essential to perform a digital rectal examination, which will inform about the approximate size and consistency of the prostate, contributing to rule out other pathologies. In addition, this is accompanied by a blood test, urine analysis, urinary flow test and ultrasound of the urinary system.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Diagnosis:

  • Specialized consultation in BPH.
  • Validated clinical questionnaire.
  • Urological ultrasound (performed by specialized radiologist).
  • Urinary flow test.
  • Blood and Urine test.
