Know all symptoms and signs of prostate cancer

As per studies, prostate cancer is more common in men above 65 years of age. Now it is  increasing in younger people.

Prostate gland is an integral part in the reproductive system of men. It is situated below the urinary bladder. Prostate gland helps in the production of seminal liquid.

According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, some of the symptoms include difficulty urinating, burning or pain during urination, frequent urination at night, or complete loss of bladder control.Apart from this, seeing blood in urine or semen is also considered as a symptom. Erectile dysfunction or painful ejaculation are also some early symptoms of prostate cancer.

Ignoring early symptoms can lead to cancer spreading to other parts of the body, including bones and lymph nodes, causing serious complications. This is called advanced or metastatic prostate cancer.

Symptoms of prostate cancer include swelling in the legs or pelvic area, numbness or pain in the hips and bone pain. It is important to get tested if you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above. Early diagnosis reduces the risk of cancer spreading to other parts of the body.

The cause of prostate cancer is not clear. Age increases the risk of this. Eating too much red meat and fatty foods and not eating enough fruits and vegetables can increase the risk of prostate cancer. Obesity, smoking and lack of exercise also increase the risk of prostate cancer.
