The prostate is a small gland in the pelvis, found only in men.

About the size of a satsuma, it's located between the penis and the bladder, and surrounds the urethra.

The main function of the prostate is to produce a thick white fluid that creates semen when mixed with the sperm produced by the testicles.


This video covers the common signs and symptoms of prostate cancer that should prompt you to speak to your healthcare professional. Please remember that not every person with cancer has symptoms therefore if you feel something isn’t right or the way your body usually works has changed then please speak to your healthcare professional and don’t leave it - Spotting cancer early saves lives.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. It usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs for many years.

Here are the common signs and symptoms that should prompt you to speak to your healthcare professional urgently,

• Having difficulty peeing

• Struggling to start urinating or having a weak flow

• Struggling to empty your bladder or feeling like it hasn’t emptied properly

• Needing to pee more often than usual, especially at night

• Experiencing sudden urges to urinate

• Leaking before you get to the bathroom

• ‘Dribbling’ pee even after urinating

Sometimes prostate cancer can eventually spread further and into other parts of the body, and this is known as advanced prostate cancer. Symptoms of this can include,

• Dull or stabbing bone pain, such as in your back, hips or pelvis

• Leg swelling

• Blood in your pee or semen

• Difficulty getting or keeping an erection

• Feeling generally tired or unwell

• Unexplained weight loss
