If you have suspected or have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you are probably wondering if there were any warning signs that you might have missed.
Prostate cancer symptoms are usually seen when the cancer is more advanced. Some prostate cancer symptoms can be:
- Trouble urinating
- Decreased force in the stream of urine
- Blood in semen
- Blood in the urine
- Discomfort in the pelvic area
- Bone pain
- Erectile dysfunction
- Pressure or pain in the rectum
If you experience urinary symptoms, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have prostate cancer. Conditions such as Prostatitis or BPH (BenignProstatic Hypertrophy), also known as enlargement of the prostate, are benign diseases but they can cause similar symptoms as prostate cancer and are very common.
If you have any symptoms that worry you and you’re concerned that they are prostate cancer symptoms, schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. Early detection is key to a full recovery.
