PROSTATE CANCER WARNING SIGNS

According to a recent article in U.S. News, many men will develop some degree of prostate cancer if they live long enough. Autopsy studies have shown microscopic evidence of prostate cancer in 15 to 30 percent of men over the age of 50 and in 60 percent to 70 percent of men who reach age 80. The report indicates that a male born today has a 16 percent chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer at some time in his life and a 3 percent chance of dying of the disease.

In its early stages, prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms. As the prostate enlarges, however, a man may experience some of the following symptoms:

  • Frequent urination, especially at night
  • Inability to urinate.
  • Trouble starting or holding back urination.
  • A weak or interrupted flow of urine.
  • Painful or burning urination.
  • Blood in the urine or semen.
  • Painful ejaculation.
  • Frequent pain the lower back, hips, or upper thighs.

Although these can be symptoms of cancer, often times they are not. Therefore, if you experience any of these symptoms on a regular basis, you should seek the advice of your doctor immediately.
