Symptoms

Because prostate cancer is often slow growing symptoms may not occur for many years.  Men with early prostate cancer rarely have symptoms.  It is more common for men over 50 to get symptoms from benign (non cancerous) enlargement of the prostate.  However these symptoms are similar to those caused by more widespread cancer and include:

  • Difficulty passing urine
  • Passing urine more frequently including at night
  • Pain when passing urine
  • Blood in the urine (uncommon)

If you experience any of these symptoms you should get them checked out by your doctor.
