5 Visual Signs Of Prostate Cancer
2
  • Prostate cancer is the second leading type of
    cancer in men behind skin cancer and is one of
    the primary causes of death among men of all
    races. It is estimated that approximately
    twenty-seven thousand nine hundred and seventy
    men will die from prostate cancer in the United
    States alone.

  • Despite these numbers, prostate cancer is highly
    treatable if it is caught during the early stages
    of the disease. Here are the visual signs to look
    out for.

1. Frequent Urination
  • Although there are no real warning signs of early
    prostate cancer, frequent urination may be an
    indication of swelling or pressure on the
    prostate gland. This occurs when a tumor has
    formed and puts pressure on the prostate gland,
    resulting in the urge to urinate more often than
    normal, especially at night. In some cases,
    frequent urination is a sign that the tumor has
    spread beyond the prostate or may entirely
    encompass the gland.

2. Difficulty Urinating
  • Difficulty urinating may be caused when the
    prostate gland grows large enough to press
    against the urethra, making it harder for urine
    to be comfortably evacuated from the body. This
    is known as a condition called benign prostate
    hyperplasia.

7
  • However, a man may also experience difficulty
    urinating when a tumor is pressing against the
    urethra. Other symptoms may include a burning
    sensation or pain while urinating or during
    ejaculation. A doctor should be notified at the
    first sign of these symptoms to rule out prostate
    cancer.

3. Interrupted Urine Flow
  • Along with difficulty urinating, a man with
    prostate cancer may experience an interrupted
    urine flow that starts and often stops before the
    bladder feels empty. This may be caused by a
    tumor growth pressing on the urethra.

  • Enlargement or inflammation of the prostate gland
    are also symptoms of prostate cancer and may
    cause an interrupted urine stream. A frequently
    interrupted urine stream may be an indication of
    a tumor and should be discussed with a doctor.

4. Blood
  • The presence of blood in the semen or urine may
    be a sign of prostate cancer. It is important to
    seek medical treatment to rule out other
    conditions as blood in the urine may be related
    to a urinary tract infection or kidney disease.
    Cancer may block the urethra tube, resulting in
    painful inflammation and bleeding of the prostate
    gland. Blood in the urine is usually a sign of
    advanced cancer and needs to be looked after
    immediately.

12
5. Enlarged Prostate
  • Although a mans prostate will naturally grow as
    he ages, abnormally large growth advancements may
    be a sign of cancer. Several tests can be
    performed by a medical doctor to determine if
    cancer is present. A digital rectal exam involves
    a medical professional using an index finger to
    check the gland for abnormalities.

13
  • An enlarged gland will feel smooth and firm while
    cancer will feel hard and lumpy. An ultrasound
    may also be done to determine the health of the
    prostate gland.
