Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men.
Over 41,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. It usually affects men over 50 and is rare in younger men.
Cancer of the prostate is often slow-growing and symptoms may not occur for many years.
Men with early prostate cancer may not have any symptoms, as these only occur when the cancer is large enough to put pressure on the urethra. The prostate can also become enlarged due to a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is non-cancerous.
The symptoms of benign (non-cancerous) enlargement of the prostate and prostate cancer are similar. They can include any of the following:
- difficulty passing urine
- passing urine more frequently than usual, especially at night
- the feeling of not completely emptying your bladder
- needing to rush to the toilet to pass urine
- blood in the urine or semen (this is not common)
- pain when passing urine or ejaculating (this is rare).
