Prostate Cancer - Symptoms

A man with prostate cancer may not have any symptoms. However, there are several symptoms that may arise.

A man with prostate cancer may not have any symptoms. For men who do have symptoms, the common symptoms include:
  • Urinary problems
  •  
    • Not being able to pass urine
  •  
    • Having a hard time starting or stopping the urine flow
  •  
    • Needing to urinate often, especially at night
  •  
    • Weak flow of urine
  •  
    • Urine flow that starts and stops
  •  
    • Pain or burning during urination
  •  
    • Difficulty having an erection
  •  
    • Blood in the urine or semen
  • Frequent pain in the lower back, hips, or upper thighs

Most often, these symptoms are not due to cancer. BPH, an infection, or another health problem may cause them. If you have any of these symptoms, you should tell your doctor so that problems can be diagnosed and treated.
