Prostate Cancer Symptoms   

Prostate cancer tends to grow without causing any signs or symptoms. It is discovered during blood tests - including prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test or digital rectal examination - performed for other medical conditions having symptoms related to prostate cancer(benign prostatic hyperplasia for instance). When symptoms finally emerge; it often indicates an advanced prostate cancer.  

As the tumor grows within the prostate gland, you may experience the following symptoms:  

  • frequent need to urinate, especially at night;  
  • urgent need to urinate (urgency)  
  • burning or pain during urination 
  • urinary hesitancy/urinary intermittency (u rinary stream starts and stops)  
  • sensation of incomplete emptying of the bladder 
  • difficulty starting or stopping urinating, or inability to urinate 
  • painful ejaculation  
  • Presence of blood in urine or semen. 

If the cancer has already spread into the lymph nodes in your pelvis or bones, you may also experience:

  • bone fractures 
  • chronic bone pain 
  • swelling in your legs 
  • compression of the spinal cord 
  • Pain or discomfort in your pelvic area.
