Following news that prostate cancer is officially a bigger killer than breast cancer, we reckon it’s time to go over the signs and symptoms of the disease – and to encourage every man to get checked out.
One man dies of prostate cancer every 45 minutes in the UK. It’s a huge issue that we can’t stay silent about.
The earlier you’re diagnosed with prostate cancer the more likely treatment is to be effective. So it’s crucial to get over any embarrassment or squeamishness around the prostate and brave the doctor if you feel something’s wrong.
Prostate cancer doesn’t usually cause any symptoms until the cancer has grown large enough to put pressure on the urethra, which leads to issues with urination.
The main things to watch out for when it comes to prostate cancer are difficulties with urination.
Symptoms include needing to urinate more frequently, difficulty in starting to wee, straining or taking a long time when weeing, a weak flow of urine, feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully, and feeling like you need to rush to the toilet.
There can also be blood in the urine or a loss of bladder control.
Signs of prostate cancer:
- Needing to urinate more frequently, often during the night
- Needing to rush to the toilet Difficulty in starting to urinate
- Straining or taking a long time while urinating
- A weak flow of urine Feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully
- Dribbling urine after you’ve finished weeing
If the cancer spreads beyond the prostate, symptoms become more noticeable. You may see blood in the semen, erectile dysfunction, painful ejaculation, swelling in the pelvic area, numbness in the hips, legs, or feet, unexplained weight loss, and pain in the testicles.
Signs prostate cancer may have spread:
- Back pain, hip pain or pelvis pain
- Problems getting or keeping an erection
- Blood in the urine or semen
- Unexplained weight loss.
- Loss of appetite
- Pain in the testicles
- Swelling in the pelvic area
The issue with many of these symptoms is that men can have a tendency to ignore them, thinking they’re just standard parts of getting older or feeling too embarrassed to bring them up with a professional.
