Knowing the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer

Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next ten years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support, they aim to stop prostate cancer being a killer…

An enlarged prostate is the most common cause of urinary problems in men as they get older.

Possible symptoms include:

  • A weak flow when you urinate
  • A feeling that your bladder hasn’t emptied properly
  • Difficulty starting to urinate
  • Dribbling urine after you finish urinating
  • Needing to urinate more often, especially at night
  • Needing to rush to the toilet – you may sometimes leak urine before you get there.

You may not get all of these symptoms, and some men don’t have any symptoms at all. These symptoms can be caused by other things such as cold weather, anxiety, other health problems, lifestyle factors and some medicines. Blood in your urine is rarely a symptom of an enlarged prostate and is usually caused by something else.

Black men are more likely to get prostate cancer than other men in the UK. Find out more on this here.

If you have any of the symptoms above, you should visit your GP to find out what is causing them.
