Abstract

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) have been increasing in incidence and prevalence in the United States. With a large annual health care cost, an association with a significantly reduced quality of life, and an aging population, LUTS is increasingly becoming more of a burden on the health care system. The American Urological Association created a symptom index in 1992 that assesses for the severity of seven LUTS associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia. This project seeks to address the question of which symptoms from the index score are more common; whether certain symptoms are more concerning from a patient’s perspective.
