The tumour affects the Prostate, which is a small gland that’s found in the pelvis of men.
That’s because the symptoms tend to develop very slowly over a long period of time.
“Even when Prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body, it often can be managed for a long time, allowing men even with advanced Prostate cancer to live with good health and quality of life for many years.
“If you are concerned about any changes you experience, please talk with your doctor.”
Impotence is a very common condition, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have Prostate cancer.
It may also be caused by stress, tiredness, or anxiety.
Erectile dysfunction is more likely to develop in men over 40 years old, and it’s usually nothing to worry about.
Your doctor will ask about your lifestyle, as well as any other symptoms you may be having.
A burning pain while passing urine may also be caused by the disease.
Other symptoms include finding blood in your semen, and passing more urine – particularly at night.
Around 50,000 new cases of Prostate cancer are diagnosed every year in the UK.
