Prostate cancer symptoms

Often prostate cancer doesn’t have any symptoms, but when they do occur they may include:

  • Urinating frequently
  • Difficult or painful urination or ejaculation
  • Delay or hesitancy before urinating
  • A feeling that the bladder has not completely emptied
  • Blood in urine or semen
  • Disturbed sleep because of the need to urinate

Sometimes the first sign of prostate cancer is from secondary deposits (also known as metastases) once the cancer has spread through the body. Prostate cancer typically spreads to the bones, so in advanced prostate cancer, the following symptoms may occur:

  • Weight loss
  • Bone pain
  • Pain in the loins, pelvis or lower back

It’s important to be aware that there are a number of non-cancerous medical conditions that may also cause these symptoms, for example infection or benign prostate enlargement. Diagnostic tests will help clarify the problem
