November Blue: Symptoms

What are the signs and symptoms?

In the initial phase, prostate cancer may not present symptoms and, when present, the most common are:

  • Difficulty in urinating
  • It takes time to start and stop urinating
  • Blood in the urine
  • Decreased urine output
  • Need to urinate more often during the day or at night

If you have any of these symptoms, look for the health unit!

These signs and symptoms also occur due to prostate disease. For example:

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is the benign enlargement of the prostate. It affects more than half of men over the age of 50 and occurs naturally with advancing age.

Prostatitis is an inflammation in the prostate, usually caused by bacteria.

In the presence of signs and symptoms, it is recommended to perform tests to investigate prostate cancer.
