Prostate Cancer

This cancer forms in tissues of the prostate, the gland in the male reproductive system found below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancer usually occurs in older men.

Symptoms:

  • Weak or interrupted (“stop-and-go”) flow of urine
  • Sudden urge to urinate
  • Frequent urination—especially at night
  • Trouble starting the flow of urine
  • Trouble emptying the bladder completely
  • Pain or burning while urinating
  • Blood in the urine or semen
  • A pain in the back, hips or pelvis that doesn’t go away
  • Shortness of breath, feeling very tired, fast heartbeat, dizziness or pale skin caused by anemia

Treatment:

Different treatments are available for patients with prostate cancer, including clinical trials of new treatments for patients with cancer.
