What are signs of prostate cancer?
Posted by Diana H

[display_name id=”0″]The problem with prostate cancer is there often aren’t any early symptoms and the symptoms that do occur are similar to other benign conditions that affect many men who don’t have prostate cancer. The key to early diagnosis is regular PSA testing and digital exams which are needed by all men older than 50. A PSA at ages 40 and 45 is not a bad idea either.


What are the causes of prostate cancer?what are the signs and symptoms?

[display_name id=”0″]Prostate cancer is a disease in which cancer develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Cancer occurs when cells of the prostate mutate and begin to multiply out of control. These cells may spread (metastasize) from the prostate to other parts of the body, especially the bones and lymph nodes. Prostate cancer may cause pain, difficulty in urinating, erectile dysfunction and other symptoms.


Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms. Often it is diagnosed during the workup for an elevated PSA noticed during a routine checkup. Sometimes, however, prostate cancer does cause symptoms, often similar to those of diseases such as benign prostatic hypertrophy. These include frequent urination, increased urination at night, difficulty starting and maintaining a steady stream of urine, blood in the urine, and painful urination. Prostate cancer may also cause problems with sexual function, such as difficulty achieving erection or painful ejaculation.

Advanced prostate cancer may cause additional symptoms as the disease spreads to other parts of the body. The most common symptom is bone pain, often in the vertebrae (bones of the spine), pelvis or ribs, from cancer which has spread to these bones. Prostate cancer in the spine can also compress the spinal cord, causing leg weakness and urinary and fecal incontinence.


What are the signs/symptoms of prostate cancer?My husband recently told me for the past year he’s been having trouble peeing – It wouldn’t start when he felt he had to go and once it did begin, it hurt. I asked him hurt how? And he said kind of like peeing razor blades. His dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2006, and the doctor instructed my husband to get checked when he turned 30 because this could be hereditary. Also, he’s currently experiencing a lot of pain in his scrotal area – The right side was swollen last night when he got home from work, and he said he felt like he had pulled a groin muscle (was almost limping) – Is it possible it could be cancer? Or are we over paranoid?

[display_name id=”0″]NO YOU ARE NOT PARANOID – Has he been to a doctor for a psa and rectal exam. I would think he should. I have had prostate problems since I was 19 and believe me it is not fun. Mainly with pain in his scrotum – he should be examined. If it turns out just prostatitus I can tell you a remedy after some antibiotics that you both can work on or if he has to do like me and take care of it himself and that is to have sex on a regular basis. Same days every week – the medical reason being that the prostate generates fluid to be passed when ejaculation occurs. It builds this fluid supply on a routine basis. If this is not used there is an overabundance so this builds pressure in the prostate causeing swelling. The urethra passes thru the prostate and the flow of urine is affected causeing low flow, not emptying creating the urge to go more. I took control of mine by masturbating the same two days every week (Tuesday & Friday) cause my wife didn’t want sex. Are you gonna tell him this? I hope so cause that hurts like heck. Good luck.…
