6 Signs Of Prostate Cancer That All Men Should Be Aware Of

Cancer is a fatal disease caused by the proliferation of cancerous cells in the body's organs. Cancer can strike both men and women in some cases. Some types of cancer are only found in women, while others are only found in men.

Prostrate cancer is a cancer that affects only men. The prostate is a part of a man's reproductive system that is affected by prostate cancer. Men over the age of 50 are at a higher risk of developing prostate cancer.


Prostate cancer is usually non-aggressive, and it does not always necessitate treatment. Prostate cancer in black men (including Nigerian men) is usually aggressive, according to studies, and requires treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiology to cure.

Prostate cancer is a disease that must be treated quickly before it spreads and becomes more difficult to treat, if not impossible to treat. Prostate cancer in its advanced stages necessitates aggressive treatments such as chemotherapy, radiology, and surgery. Unfortunately, these treatments are not guaranteed to work, especially if the prostate cancer has progressed to stage 4.


The following are six (6) signs of prostate cancer that all men should be aware of.


1. The Presence Of Blood In The Urine: Normal urine should be clear or slightly yellowish in color. When a man's urine is tainted with blood, however, it could indicate that he has prostate cancer. When blood starts showing in the urine it indicates that a man might have an advanced case of prostrate cancer.

2. Difficulty Urinating: passing out urine should not be a tough procedure infact, it should be a simple process because, urine is a waste product that the body wants to get rid of. However, when urinating becomes a difficult process for a man, it is probably a symptom that such a man has an advanced stage of prostrate cancer.

3. Presence Of Blood In The Semen: the substance a guy releases during intercourse is termed, semen. A normal semen is expected to be white. However, if a guy observes that, the semen he produces contains blood, it can be a red flag that indicates he has prostrate cancer.


4. Erectile Dysfunction: when a man is aroused, and his manhood gets erect. Erectile dysfunction is a condition in which a man has trouble getting an erection or cannot get one at all. It's possible that a man's abrupt onset of erectile dysfunction is a symptom that he has prostrate cancer.


5. Unexplained Weight Loss: rapid weight loss is one of the indications of advanced prostate cancer. When a guy suddenly loses weight for no apparent reason, it could be a symptom that he has prostate cancer that has yet to be diagnosed.

6. Pee Stream With Less Force: Normally, when a guy urinates, the urine comes out of the urethra with some force or pressure. However, if a man's urine force suddenly decreases, it could indicate that he has prostrate cancer.

NOTE: Prostrate cancer is considered harmful since it rarely shows symptoms until it has progressed to an advanced stage. As a result, men aged 45 and higher should make an effort to have a routine medical checkup in order to detect prostate cancer early.
