Prostate cancer is very difficult to be detected in the early stage; therefore it cannot be stopped as early as possible because the symptoms that accompany this disease are not shown immediately. Lot of men notice the symptoms when the disease starts its spreading.
Therefore, regular examinations yearly must be performed in order for the illness to be detected in the early stage. These examinations should be done every year so the cancer could be discovered in its early stage. Self-examination is also an option which can be very helpful.
Here below are the twelve early symptoms of prostate cancer which no men should ignore them:
- Frequent urinating especially during the night.
- Occurrence of difficulties when urinating meaning trouble starting and stopping while urinating.
- Change of urine color and weak stream of it. You may experience tingling, but this is a symptom also for many other diseases.
- Occurrence of blood in the sperm.
- Occurrence of blood in urine (hematuria).
- Appearance of unpleasant feeling when starting to urinate or a feeling that you need to hold back a bit when urinating.
- Occurrence of swellings and pain in the thighs, hips, and lower back.
- Persistent bone pain that does not go away, or results in fractures.
- Pain in the pelvic area.
- Ejaculation issues.
- Pain or burning feeling when urinating.
The above mentioned symptoms are same as if there is a blockage in the prostate. They are not always connected with prostate cancer. A few of them may occur as a result of extended prostate or some urinary tract illness. Therefore, it is of vital importance to consult your doctor so that you have determined diagnose.
