These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have prostate cancer but could be a sign of a non-cancerous condition called prostate enlargement.
Prostate enlargement is common in men aged over 50 and is not usually a serious threat to health.
Symptoms of prostate enlargement are very similar to prostate cancer, with which they can be easily confused.
This is especially true in men over 50, as prostate cancer is also more common in men over that age. The risk of developing prostate cancer rises the older you get.
“If you do notice changes in the way you urinate, this is more likely to be a sign of a very common non-cancerous problem called an enlarged prostate, or another health problem,” said Prostate Cancer UK.
“But it’s still a good idea to get it checked out.”
