Prostate cancer is generally a slow growing disease and rarely associated with symptoms in its early stages. Primarily, the best way to look for prostate cancer remains the simple blood test, PSA. However, prostate cancer can present with symptoms when more advanced, including urinary problems such as a poor urinary stream, going to the loo frequently, both day and night, visible blood in the urine or semen or discomfort or pain. These symptoms are, however, very common and very much more usually associated with benign rather than cancerous disease of the prostate. As the disease progresses, symptoms of metastatic disease including lethargy, weight loss, loss of appetite, bone pain or even bone fracture can occur.
