Prostate Cancer Symptoms


Warning Signs of Prostate Cancer

  • Blood in urine (hematuria)
  • Pain or difficulty urinating
  • Increased frequency of urination, often at night (nocturia)
  • Increased voiding urgency
  • Hesitant or intermittent urinary flow
  • Trouble having or keeping an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Weakness or numbness in the legs or feet
  • Unusual and unexplained weight loss
  • Continual pain in bones of lower back, hips or pelvis

*All symptoms listed may be due to benign conditions of the prostate or other conditions entirely unrelated to prostate cancer. Weakness or numbness in the lower extremities, for example, would not only be a symptom of far advanced prostate cancer with spread to the spine but a symptom of virtually any advanced malignancy, as well as other conditions such as a herniated disc or spinal stenosis.

This section was written for men concerned that they may have prostate cancer. There is a special section for men with a rising PSA and a negative biopsy(s) who have concerns that they may still have cancer and are unsure of what to do now. We commend you for educating yourself about this disease and hope this section will help to answer your questions.
