Signs and Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

The prostate is a gland located in the men’s lower abdomen. It is controlled by testosterone hormone and is responsible for the production of semen. Prostate cancer occurs when a malignant and abnormal tumor forms in this organ. This is a serious illness that mostly happens in middle-aged men or the elderly. Cancerous cells might spread to other body parts and lead to further complications. Below are some common signs and symptoms of prostate cancer that you should know.

Frequent Urination

One of the most common signs of prostate cancer is frequent urination. While many of us do not record how often we urinate on a daily basis, it is simple to notice when you need to urinate more than usual. A healthy person typically goes to the toilet 7 to 8 times per day. More than this number might indicate some problems with the bladder. Make sure to inform your doctor as soon as you notice this change. [1]
