    Do I have prostate cancer?

    I am a 55 year old man and have been experiencing pain while urinating and difficulty performing sexually… this has gone on for a few weeks. Could these be early signs of prostate cancer?

    Painful urination is often caused by a urinary tract infection or a prostate infection.  A visit to your doctor is necessary. Untreated urinary tract infections and prostate infections can spread causing a severe condition. An enlargement of the prostate (benign hyperplasia and cancer) can also cause urinary symptoms, specially the feeling that the bladder is not empty after urinating and be the basis for a urinary infection.  It is vitally important that you see your own health care provider for a complete evaluation and treatment.
