Prostate cancer often shows no symptoms in the early stages. If symptoms do appear, they vary from man to man.
Symptoms of prostate cancer may include:
- Painful or burning urination
- Inability to urinate or difficulty in starting to urinate
- Difficulty trying to hold back urination
- Weak or interrupted urine flow
- Frequent or urgent need to urinate
- Trouble emptying the bladder completely
- Blood in the urine or semen
- Continual pain in the lower back, pelvis, hips or thighs
- Difficulty having an erection
Having any of these symptoms does not mean you have cancer, and they may indicate other health problems. If you notice one or more of these symptoms for more than two weeks, see your doctor.
