Signs and Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

Signs and
Symptoms of
Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer rarely causes any urine symptoms, such as a weak, slow stream. The urinary symptoms are normally caused from compression (squeezing) of the urethra due to an enlarged prostate, called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). The first sign or symptom of prostate cancer is usually bone pain from cancer cells that have spread to bone, such as your spine, and then you are not curable.

Your best defense against prostate cancer is the PSA test which can lead to early detection, a critical part of being successfully treated. Recommendations for initiating testing for elevations or changes in PSA vary based on age, history and ethnicity. Current recommendations to start PSA testing include:

  • All Men over the age of 50
  • African American men 45 years old, or older
  • Men with a family history of prostate cancer at age 40

A rising PSA may be a sign of prostate cancer; however, a rising PSA may also be caused by BPH (an enlarged prostate).


The other method of determining prostate cancer is through a digital rectal exam that is conducted by your physician or other trained personnel. This exam allows the physician to touch the prostate gland and identify nodules, lumps or hardness in the prostate.

If you have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, it’s critical to personally research prostate cancer treatment options to make an informed decision that is best for you and your family. And, with few exceptions, your first treatment method gives you the best chance for success.
