Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms and is most often found by a PSA test and/or DRE. These symptoms include: A need to urinate frequently, especially at night. Difficulty starting urination or holding back urine. Weak or interrupted flow of urine. Painful or burning urination. Difficulty in having an erection. Painful ejaculation. Blood in urine or semen.
Prostate cancer normally causes no symptoms until the cancer has grown large enough to put pressure on the urethra. Unfortunately, prostate cancer has no early warning signals. However, many men have symptoms that do point to problems with the prostate gland.
