Symptons of Prostrate Cancer – Do You Know All The Symptoms?

There are no early warning signs of the disease – at least if there are the professionals don’t know about them. Unfortunately that is when the disease is most treatable and curable: advanced stage disease is a problem in more ways than one. Later on, some symptoms typically do start to appear, though, and even though they may be somewhat late, the disease may still be curable.

When the symptoms of prostate cancer appear, they include pain in urine, difficulty starting and maintaining a stream of urine, and increased urination. By the way, the increased urination occurs at night, which may make it difficult to observe the blood in urine at first. However within a short while, the patient will see that one too – cause for concern, that.

It’s because of the location of the prostate gland – chestnut shaped, sitting just under the bladder and partially surrounding it. There is hardly a way that anything could affect the prostate gland without affecting urinary function in some way. The fact that the prostate also partially enwraps the urethra certainly does not make it that much easier; and the fact that the prostate produces some of the fluid that is ejaculated at sexual orgasm explains the blood in ejaculate, which signifies perhaps the extreme damage to the prostate.

Blood in semen often occurs when the cancerous tumor has started to break out of the prostate into the bloodstream and out into other locations around the body, something that really should never be allowed to happen. Other problems with sexual function and performance that result from prostate cancer may include painful intercourse, painful ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction (difficulty achieving an erection).

And those were all for when the disease was still nice – later stages of the disease tend to bring with them their own complications and indicators. The most common symptom of advanced stage prostate cancer is bone pain, signifying bone metastasis of the disease. The bone pain typically begins in the prostate region or pelvis, but soon it is out as far as the skull sometimes, getting through the backbone and the ribs in the process.

Advanced stage prostate cancer could do damage to the femur too, often causing proximal pain in the thigh bone. In some instances, the disease could progress such that the spreading cancerous cells start to compress the spinal cord, causing what some would refer to as the worst of the disease – leg weakness and perhaps paralysis, plus fecal and urinary incontinence.

  1. Thank you for all this great information about knowing the symptoms of prostate cancer! I really like your point about that if there is blood in the seamen then it might be a sign of a cancerous tumor and we should contact a doctor as soon as possible. My husband has been hurting in the area for a while, so we’ll need to watch for blood or any of the other signs to see if we should be concerned. Thanks again for your help.
