Symptoms

Early-stage prostate cancer may go unnoticed for years without causing any symptoms. That's why early detection tests such as the blood test for prostate-specific antigen (PSA) are so important.

When symptoms of prostate cancer do appear, they may include:

  • weak or interrupted flow of urine
  • urinating often (especially at night)
  • difficulty urinating or holding back urine
  • inability to urinate
  • pain or burning when urinating
  • blood in the urine or semen
  • persistent pain in the back, hips, or pelvis
  • difficulty having an erection

These symptoms may also be associated with conditions other than prostate cancer, such as benign enlargement of the prostate. Patients should see a doctor to determine the cause of their symptoms.
