Prostate cancer has become a more prevalent risk in men. The prostate is a small gland.
While most prostate cancer remains confined to that gland, early detection and treatment is the best choice for your health. At Northern Medical Group – Urology, we offer prostate screening to help monitor your health and detect any signs of cancer. Screenings are done through blood samples as well as examination of the rectal and prostate area to detect any abnormalities.
Common symptoms of prostate cancer are:
- Trouble urinating
- Decreased flow in the stream of urine
- Blood in urine
- Blood in semen
- General pain in the lower back, hips or thighs
- Discomfort in the pelvic area
- Bone pain
- Erectile dysfunction
