Signs and Symptoms

Most patients with early-stage Ca P have no signs and symptoms. Patients with locally advanced disease may experience obstructive or irritative signs and symptoms (dysuria, straining, decreased force of stream, hesitancy, increased night frequency) due to extension of the cancer into the urethra or the bladder neck. Metastatic Ca P signs and symptoms include bone pain, spinal cord compression, and/or weakness in the lower extremities.
