Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

104171 sml In its early stages, prostate cancer usually doesn’t cause symptoms.

As the disease progresses, symptoms may develop that can be similar to the symptoms for BPH and/or prostatitis (see the BPH and prostatitis sections on this website for more information).

Symptoms can include:

  • Chronic pain in the hips, thighs, or lower back
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Painful / burning urination
  • Blood in the urine / semen
  • Trouble getting an erection

Since prostate cancer doesn’t have early symptoms, and the symptoms that may show can be the same as for other non-cancerous conditions, prostate cancer is very hard to diagnose.

That’s why it’s very important to speak to you healthcare provider about regular screening.
