Dr. Rosalia Viterbo answers the question: 'Warning Signs Of Prostate Cancer?'

March 16, 2009 -- Question: What kinds of symptoms might be warning signs of prostate cancer?

Answer: Cancer gives no typical warning signs or symptoms. Prostate cancer usually grows slowly. Patients may experience some urinary frequency, hesitancy or urgency. These are oftentimes associated with an enlarged prostate which may be benign and not typical of cancerous growth.

In advanced cases of prostate cancer, patients may experience some fatigue, weakness, weight loss or bone pain.
