What are the symptoms of prostate cancer ?

Prostate cancer grows from prostatic glands (adenocarcinoma). Most often, it does not cause urinary disorders because it develops inside the prostate area without compressing the urethra.

However, it can happen that the cancer causes disorders, especially at an advanced stage: – Abnormal frequency of urination needs, especially at night – Difficulty in urination: weak urinary stream, incomplete evacuation… – Acute urinary retention – Pain by urinating In most cases, prostate cancer will be detected during a medical check-up.
