According to WebMD, most men don’t know they have prostate cancer until it’s found during a routine physical. While the disease doesn’t typically cause symptoms in its early stages, there are some signs you can look for.

While these symptoms may also be the symptom of something else besides prostate cancer, they can be signs of the disease.

One of the most common symptoms men notice are problems with urination. Not being able to urinate, urinating often, or experiencing pain or burning during urination can all be symptoms.

Other symptoms include: difficulty having an erection; noticing blood in your urine or semen; pain in your lower back, stomach, hip or pelvis.

If you experience any of these symptoms you should reach out to your doctor for further examination.
