through pioneering research and promoting awareness
There is no single symptom to indicate the presence of prostate cancer. Problems with the prostate are common; they may not necessarily be caused by cancer, and may result in slowly developing symptoms that can easily be confused with “getting older”.
Because the prostate gland surrounds the tube known as the urethra, which passes urine from the bladder to the outside of the body, any prostate disease or growth (benign or malignant) is likely to cause problems with urination.
These symptoms do not necessarily mean that prostate cancer is present. Many men with early prostate cancer will have no symptoms at all.
