That depends very much on the stage of the disease. Early prostate cancer often has no symptoms. It’s not very common in men as young as you are....unless you have a strong family history of prostate cancer. See your doctor and find out what is causing your symptoms.

Prostate cancer is often a silent cancer and can present with metastasis if annual physical exams and PSA checks are not performed. To learn more, visit my website: https://www.radroboticsurgery.com/post/prostatecancer
You should see your doctor and get an examination and blood work which will rule out prostate cancer.
