Prostate Cancer - Symptoms

Prostate cancer signs and symptoms

One of the problems related to prostate cancer is that, in its early stages, it often does not cause symptoms. Where symptoms do occur they may include any of the following problems:

  • Having to rush to the toilet to pass urine
  • Passing urine more often and/or at night
  • Difficulty getting the flow of urine started
  • Starting and stopping whilst passing urine
  • Discomfort (pain or burning) whilst passing urine
  • A feeling of not having emptied the bladder fully
  • Dribbling of urine
  • Blood in urine or semen
  • Pain or stiffness in the back, hips or pelvis

The prostate enlarges as men get older, and most men have some symptoms affecting urination. These symptoms can be caused by other conditions that are less serious than prostate cancer, such as a non-cancerous enlarged prostate gland or a kidney infection.

However, it is vital that you do go and see your doctor as soon as possible if you are suffering from any of these symptoms so that the cause can be diagnosed and any relevant treatment administered.
