Recognizing the signs of prostate cancer can be difficult as there are usually no symptoms in the early stages of the cancer’s development. Most prostate cancer is slow-growing to start with and may never actually cause any pain, problems or symptoms in a man’s lifetime.
However, there are certain prostate cancer warnings signs which may indicate a more aggressive and fast-growing cancer.
The following are signs of prostate cancer, however, it should be noted that these could be associated with another health issue unrelated to prostate cancer:
Although these are all prostate cancer warning signs, they could be due to another issue such as prostate enlargement which is a non-cancerous condition that affects the majority of older men.
The best way to discover if the symptoms are related to prostate cancer is to have a DRE (Digital Rectal Exam) as an expert like your urologist will be able to feel the difference between cancerous and non-cancerous tissue and will be able to tell you if the symptoms are related to another health issue.
Another option which may be offered to you by a doctor is a PSA test, which can lead to unnecessary procedures and is quite a controversial test, as you can read here.
Ultimately, if you discover that you have one or more of these prostate cancer signs the best course of action is ‘watchful waiting’, especially if the cancer is low-risk. This has been backed up by studies which have been published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO) and can be found here - http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/162542.php.
It is important to understand that ‘watchful waiting’ also incorporates an overhaul in diet and lifestyle which can help to prevent the cancer from spreading.
