Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly spread cancers in men. It begins growing in the prostate gland, a small gland located underneath the bladder in the male reproductive system. Men usually develop prostate cancer at a late stage in their life. Prostate cancer can often be treated successfully especially if detected at an early stage.Early warning signs of prostate cancers can be detected with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and/or a digital rectal exam (DRE). Some of the possible signs of prostate cancer include:
- Problems urinating.
- Blood in the urine or semen.
- Erectile dysfunction.
- Pain or stiffness in the lower back, hips, or pelvis.
