Christian Brown, consultant urologist at the Prostate Center at Harley Street Clinic, part of HCA Healthcare UK, spoke exclusively with Express, to discuss the eight major symptoms of prostate cancer.
“Russia Today” quoted Christian as saying: There are vital symptoms that can be indicative of the disease, which, if detected early, can help more men receive life-saving treatment, while the cancer is still in its early stages.
Urinary symptoms can occur when the cancer grows near the urethra (the tube that passes through the prostate) and begins to put pressure on it.
Christian explained: “If you experience any of the aforementioned urinary signs, or notice a change in your urination habits, such as difficulty urinating or an increased need to urinate, it is always best to seek medical advice immediately.”
The early stages of prostate cancer are often difficult to detect, as there are often no symptoms. However, some men may notice signs of urination such as:
Urinate frequently, especially at night.
Feeling that your bladder has not completely emptied.
• Poor urine flow and drip after finishing urination.
“These could all be early warning signs that something is wrong,” he added.
Blood in urine
One of the most dangerous signs of prostate cancer is blood in the urine, Christian said.
He explained, “Known as” hematuria “, it may be a sign of a more advanced stage of cancer, so it should never be ignored. Compared to the usual pale yellow color, if there is blood in the urine, it may be dark red or pink.”
Christian added, “Sometimes urine that contains blood may be very subtle and difficult to detect, so it may pass unnoticed for a long period of time. It is important that you visit your general practitioner as soon as you encounter any urinary tract problem, and a urine test can reveal it.” Traces of blood.
In addition, along with prostate cancer, blood in the urine can indicate other urinary tract cancers including bladder cancer and infections, so it is always best to visit your GP or urologist if you suffer from any form of urinary tract problem. .
Back, hip and pelvic pain
Prostate cancer can spread to surrounding areas, such as the bones in the hips and back.
So, if the disease spreads to these areas, it could become painful – either in the form of a constant mild ache, or a recurring, sharp stabbing sensation, Christian advised.
He said, “Although this can be a sign of prostate cancer, often the back pain is due to something less serious and nothing to worry about.”
Painful eruption of semen
It is a rare but noticeable sign of prostate cancer.
Christian explained, “The pain after ejaculation can vary from one man to another. It can last for a few minutes, or about twenty-four hours after ejaculation, and vary from mild to severe.”
Prostatitis, usually caused by infection, is also a common cause of painful ejaculation. However, it can also be caused by pressure from the tumor, so it is important to see your doctor or urologist to verify the cause. ”
Unexplained weight loss
If prostate cancer spreads to other areas of the body, it may cause unexplained weight loss.
Christian recommended: “Unexplained weight loss is defined as a sudden and noticeable change in an individual’s weight. While this could be a sign of stress and other illnesses, it could also indicate a dangerous underlying condition such as cancer. Combining undue weight loss Justification and other symptoms, such as chronic fatigue, nausea and urinary tract symptoms, seek medical advice immediately.
