Hi there,

I am online and will be happy to answer your questions.

Thank you for your patience.

Prostate cancer does not cause pain in muscles if limited to prostate. it can spread to spinal cord and can cause compression of spinal nerves, which may cause pain and paralysis of lower limbs.

Prostate cancer is diagnosed with PSA levels, per rectal examination, trans rectal ultrasound, prostate biopsy.

Most men with early stage prostate cancer have no symptoms attributable to the cancer.

Urinary frequency, urgency, nocturia, and hesitancy are seen commonly but are usually related to a concomitant benign prostate enlargement
