Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

There are usually no specific signs or symptoms of early prostate cancer -- which is why prostate screening is so important. An annual physical examination, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, and digital rectal exam (DRE) provide the best chance of identifying prostate cancer in its earliest stages.

Prostate cancer symptoms do not usually appear until the disease has spread. However, there are symptoms of prostate cancer to watch out for, especially problems with urination. As prostate cancer advances, it constricts the urethra causing difficulties in urination. Difficulties with urination are a common prostate cancer symptoms.

Symptoms Are:

  1. Weak or interrupted flow of urine
  2. Urinating often (especially at night)
  3. Difficulty urinating or holding back urine
  4. Feeling like your bladder never empties
  5. Inability to urinate
  6. Burning or pain during urination
  7. Blood in the urine or semen
  8. Nagging pain in the back, hips, or pelvis
  9. Rarely, pain during orgasm
  10. Dribbling, before and/or after urinating

As a man gets older, his prostate may grow bigger and block the flow of urine, or interfere with sexual function. Although an enlarged prostate gland -- a condition called benign prostate hyperplasia -- may not be life-threatening, it may require treatment with medicine or surgery to relieve symptoms. This common benign prostate condition, which is not cancer, can cause many of the same symptoms as prostate cancer.
