Answer

As with CPPS, symptom scores should be used to monitor improvements with different interventions. The following are the most commonly used tools:

  • National Institutes of Health Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (NIH-CPSI)
  • International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPPS)
  • Urinary, Psychosocial, Organ-specific, Infection, Neurological/systemic, Tenderness (UPOINT) classification
