Fox News talked about how a lot of “symptoms of prostate cancer can also mimic other benign conditions like an enlarged prostate, a urinary tract infection, or even another type of cancer“.

These symptoms include: urinary urgency,  weak flow, blood in urine or ejaculate, or even unexpected weight loss. It could even be something as simple as a consistent pain in your lower back and pelvic area. The key word here is consistent, which  means unfaltering – not every pain means cancer. The important lesson to take away is to simply be wary, especially if you have a history of cancer in your family.
