Any relevant change in body function should be discussed with your GP to arrange further investigation: more frequent need to pee, urgency to pee, pain when going for a pee, change in erectile function, even aches around the body such as persistent back pain. Please bear in mind that many of the symptoms of prostate cancer are the same as symptoms for the two other benign prostate conditions, which are far more common than prostate cancer.
If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and have questions or concerns about your diagnosis and treatment you should talk to your specialist nurse.
Here is a list of relevant organisations and their website links – many of these can provide patients and carers with support and further information about research and current treatment options
- The Prostate Cancer UK
