Prostate Cancer Symptoms

There are often no symptoms of prostate cancer in its earliest stages. If symptoms are present, they vary from man to man, and may include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Hard time when starting to urinate, or trying to hold it back
  • Not being able to urinate
  • Weak or interrupted urine flow
  • Painful or burning urination
  • Blood in the urine
  • Difficulty in having an erection
  • Blood in the semen
  • Frequent pain or stiffness in the lower back, hips or upper thighs

Having any these symptoms does not mean you have cancer, but if you notice one or more of them for more than two weeks, see your doctor.
