Prostate Cancer Information
Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in men and the third leading cause of male cancer deaths. Typically, prostate cancer is very slow growing, but sometimes the disease can grow and spread quickly. Even with the latest research, it is extremely difficult for doctors to know which men have a slow growing cancer and which have a cancer that will spread rapidly.
What are the Symptoms of Prostate Cancer?
The early stages of prostate cancer generally show few symptoms. When a tumor becomes more advanced, patients may experience
- A weak urinary stream
- Inability to urinate
- Interruption of urinary stream
- Frequent urination (especially at night)
- Pain or burning during urination
- Blood in urine
Who’s at Risk for Prostate Cancer?
- Men over the age of 40
- Known risk factors include age, race and family history
- African-American men have a higher incidence of prostate cancer than Caucasian or Asian men in the U.S.
Many physicians, as well as the American Cancer Society, recommend that all men over the age of 50 have a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test regularly.
