Early signs of prostate cancer in men

Prostate cancer affects one out of every nine men at some time in their life, while it is more common in older men. Prostate cancer is found in 80% of males over the age of 80. According to research, African Americans are at a higher risk than other ethnic groups. Prostate cancer often goes undiagnosed in its early stages because the symptoms are modest or readily attributed to other causes. Early detection, on the other hand, increases the chances of a successful treatment.

The following are some of the symptoms and signs of prostate cancer:

Urination on a regular basis

Urine flow that is weak or interrupted, or the need to strain to empty the bladder

Urge to urinate frequently in the middle of the night

Urine with blood

Erectile dysfunction has manifested itself in a new way.

Urinary pain or burning is a far less prevalent symptom.

An enlarged prostate causes discomfort or agony when sitting.

Similar symptoms can be caused by other non-cancerous disorders of the prostate, such as BPH or an enlarged prostate. Alternatively, a symptom could be caused by a separate medical problem that isn't related to cancer. Urinary symptoms might also be caused by a bladder infection or other illnesses.

Symptoms of prostate cancer that has migrated outside of the gland include:

Back, hips, thighs, shoulders, and other bones pain

Swelling or accumulation of fluid in the legs or feet

Weight loss that isn't explained


Bowel habits have shifted.

Please with your doctor if you are concerned about any changes you are experiencing. In addition to other questions, your doctor will inquire about how long and how frequently you have been experiencing the symptom(s). This is to assist in determining the cause of the condition, which is referred to as a diagnosis.

Urination that has been disrupted

Urination flow can be disrupted for a variety of causes. The prostate gland frequently enlarges during the transition from middle to old age, a condition recognized medically as prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Although an enlarged prostate is inconvenient, it is not life threatening in and of itself, but it can mimic the symptoms of prostate cancer.

These symptoms may signal a prostate problem, but they are not symptoms of prostate cancer. They occur as a result of a prostate tumor pressing against the urethra (urine tube).
