Prostate cancer – Signs and symptoms

  • Need to urinate often (frequent urination), especially at night

  • Urgent need to urinate (urgent urination)

  • Difficulty starting and/or stopping urinating

  • Inability to urinate

  • Weak or reduced urine stream

  • Interrupted stream of urine

  • Feeling that you have not completely emptied your bladder

  • Burning or pain sensation during urination

  • Presence of blood in the urine or painful ejaculation

These same signs and symptoms of prostate cancer can also be caused by other conditions.   It is therefore important to consult a health care practitioner if unusual symptoms occur because

as the tumour grows or metastases attack other parts of the body, there will be what are called late symptoms such   as:

  • Bone pain especially in the back, hips, thighs or neck

  • Weight loss

  • Fatigue

  • Decreased red blood cell counts (anemia)

  • Weakness or numbness in the legs or feet

  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
