Prostate cancer is a most horrible disease that afflicts the prostate glands in men; a terrible disease that befalls at least one in every six to seven men. So what are the symptoms of prostate cancer and who does it affect?

Though this disease, prostate cancer, is particularly common in older men, young men can also be victims.

Unfortunately, the symptoms of Prostate Cancer are not clear-cut; it almost never presents any signs whatever until its too late. However, sometimes it does give warning signs, and if ignored things could become really complicated.

Below are some clear-cut symptoms of Prostate Cancer. If you, a man, notice any one of them, then your next port of call must by your doctor.


6 Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

Here are six obvious symptoms of Prostate Cancer a man should never ignore.


1. Difficulty In Urinating

Certain people see the passing out of wastewater from the body through the genitals as urinating while others term it as peeing. Whichever way you see it if you are a man and you are having problems doing it or your stream of urine is rather weak or slow, go see the doctor.

According to the words of Dr. Ash Tewari, MD, chairman of the department of urology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, in a recent interview relating to the issue “Even if you experience slowness in urine flow just on one occasion or even two, do not ignore it, such a thing is certainly not normal. Go to the hospital and see your doctor for an immediate checkup,”.

Most toilet problems and conditions in men are most likely caused by a host of other conditions such as STDs and UTIs rather than cancer, still, there is no such thing as being too careful.

Do you have the urge or need to urinate more often, particularly at night? Do you experience loss of bladder control on some of these occasions? All these issues can are usually clear signs that something’s not right ….something is seriously wrong somewhere.

Better safe, as they say than sorry. Go See your doctor immediately.

2. Body Aches

This particular case manifests in the form of pains within the body, particularly the bones—the ribs, spine, and hips.

Recurrent pains and, or, stiffness in the lower section (region) of your back, your ribs or hips, the upper thighs too …these are all symptoms that indicate that the diseases, Prostate Cancer, has not only taken root within your body but may have spread.

3. Blood In The Urine

This is yet another condition that can very easily be mistaken for an STD. If you are a man who suddenly notices blood in his urine, or experience difficulty in urination – does it burn, hurt or is it just painful to urinate? Go see your doctor at once. Why? The position of the prostate gland is very close to the bladder and the urethra, a cancerous tumor (growth) pressing against it may bring about any of these unusual urinary symptoms.
