In its early stages, prostate cancer often does not cause symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they can include:

  • A need to urinate frequently, especially at night
  • Difficulty in starting urination or inability to urinate
  • Weak or interrupted flow of urine
  • Painful or burning urination
  • Difficulty in having an erection
  • Pain during ejaculation
  • Blood in the urine orĀ semen
  • Pain or stiffness in the lower back, hips, or thighs.

Need To Know:

These symptoms also may be caused by less serious health problems, such as an infection or an enlarged prostate. A man who experiences these symptoms should see a doctor, who can perform blood tests and other exams to help determine the cause.
