Prostate cancer is a slow growing disease, which may exist in patients’ bodies for years without being detected. Often there is no obvious symptom at the early stages and the most common symptoms of prostate cancer and an enlarged non-cancerous prostate are similar.
- Passing urine more often than usual, especially at night
- Difficulty in passing urine
- Pain on passing urine
- Blood in the urine or semen
As symptoms above are very similar to those of prostate enlargement, you should consult your doctor as soon as possible for diagnosis. Pain in your pelvis, back or hips suggest advanced disease with tumuor spreading to other sites.
