Prostate Cancer Symptoms
Often prostate cancer does not reveal symptoms during its earliest and most treatable stage, which is why screening exams (digital rectal exams and PSA tests) are so crucial. Late-symptom stages include:
- Blood in the urine or semen
- Leaking urine; "dribbling" urine
- Difficulty to start urination
- Inability to empty the bladder
- Lower back pain or pelvic bone pain (may indicate that cancer has spread)
