Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK and because it develops slowly there may be no signs you have it in the early stages.
Symptoms often become apparent when your prostate is large enough to affect the tube that carries urine form the bladder to the penis - the urethra.
Many men could confuse an enlarged prostate with one of the symptoms of prostate cancer.
It’s not known exactly what causes prostate cancer, according to the NHS, but a number of things can increase your risk of developing the condition.
Age - risk rises as you get older and most cases are diagnosed in men over 50 years of age.
Ethnic group – prostate cancer is more common among men of African-Caribbean and African descent than in men of Asian descent.
