Prostate Cancer Signs & Symptoms
If detected early, prostate cancer is very treatable. While early prostate cancer usually has no symptoms, common symptoms for advanced prostate cancer can include:
- Trouble passing urine, slow or weak urine stream or feeling the need to pass urine more often, especially at night
- Blood in the urine
- Trouble getting an erection
- Pain in the hips, back, or chest
If you believe you’re experiencing any of these prostate cancer signs or symptoms, contact your physician to discuss prostate cancer screening options.
