Symptoms of Prostate Disorders

Please Note...
First, it's important to know that you may have a prostate disorder and still have no symptoms. Prostate Cancer, in particular, often has no associated symptoms, especially in its early stages.

Common Symptoms

These symptoms may be associated with a prostate disorder. If you are bothered by any of these symptoms, taking the IPSS Test and/or seeing a urologist may be helpful.
