Prostate Cancer Signs and Symptoms | Norton Healthcare Louisville, Ky.

Prostate Cancer Signs and 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.

Norton Cancer Institute is committed to helping men throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana take charge of their health. We offer a full range of advanced prostate cancer treatment options and cancer support services through every phase of care to empower you on the road to recovery.
