According to the CDC, “Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the United States.” And since November is Men’s Health Awareness month, it is a good opportunity to be reminded of the symptoms associated with prostate cancer. A PSA screening can detect cancer before it spreads – discuss with your doctor whether a PSA screening is right for you.

According to the CDC if you have any of the following symptoms you should see your doctor right away:

1. Difficulty starting urination.

2. Weak or interrupted flow of urine.

3. Urinating often, especially at night.

4. Trouble emptying the bladder completely.

5. Pain or burning during urination.

6. Blood in the urine or semen.

7. Pain in the back, hips, or pelvis that doesn’t go away.

8. Painful ejaculation.

Please note presence of these symptoms may be caused by other conditions. Contact your healthcare provider to be evaluated.
