What are the symptoms of Prostate Cancer?

Symptoms of prostate cancer can be a slowing of urine, dribbling, an urgency to urinate or needing to get up frequently at night to urinate. Often, however, these symptoms can be for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) rather than prostate cancer. However, early prostate cancer may not show any symptoms.

As prostate cancer can spread through the lymph nodes (small parts of the body that help with fluids and support the body’s defences) and the bones, pain may be felt in the hip, lower back or bones.  For further information see the prostate cancer pages
