The aim of this paper is to study the Lelong number, the integrability index and the Monge–Ampère mass at the origin of an $S^1$-invariant plurisubharmonic function on a balanced domain in $\mathbb{C}^n$ under the Schwarz symmetrization. We prove that $n$ times the integrability index is exactly the Lelong number of the symmetrization, and if the function is further toric with a single pole at the origin, then the Monge–Ampère mass is always decreasing under the symmetrization.
