Video transcript - What are the symptoms of prostate cancer?

Some men do not have any symptoms with early prostate cancer – many have symptoms and signs that we normally call prostatism  - they have slow urinary flow, frequency,  difficult in starting, difficulty in holding their bladder overnight. This is not always indicative of a cancer.

All men as they get older will tend to get prostatic symptoms – and these are part and parcel of ageing – the ageing process of a man.

However they can produce cancer and this may be the type of symptoms that brings the cancer patient to the doctor.
