Prostate Cancer Home > Symptoms of Prostrate Cancer

Were you looking for information about Prostate Cancer Symptoms? Symptoms of prostrate cancer is a common variation and misspelling of prostate cancer symptoms.
Urinary problems, painful ejaculation, and blood in the urine or semen are common symptoms of prostate cancer. The disease may be present for many years before symptoms develop, so by the time symptoms occur, the cancer may have spread beyond the prostate. There are several tests available that can detect the condition before symptoms occur, such as a PSA test or digital rectal exam.
In many cases, other medical conditions may actually be the cause of a man's symptoms. Benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatitis often cause symptoms that mimic those of prostate cancer.
