I'm 18 years old and I'm very worried that I may have cancer of the prostate. I'm new here and am hoping to find some answers. Here are a couple of different symptoms that I have experienced.
- I urinate quite frequently, about once every 2 hours. My urine is almost always very light yellow or clear. I have had 3 urinalysis's done. One came back with very little protein in the urine, the other two were completely negative.
-Sometimes my stream is slow to start. Almost like I have to wait for it to build up before it comes out. I sometimes have to wait 4-10 seconds for it to come out. but once it gets going it's a good stream. (I heard that if you urinate frequently sometimes a slow start to urinating is because of you peeing often.) But im not sure. I have no issues stopping it and starting again. It's consistent and doesn't start and stop. This only ever happens when I have to urinate and it's a very small urge but I still go so I can be comfortable. When I have a strong urge and there's a decent amount of urine in my bladder, it is quick to start and there's no problems.
- At the end of urinating I drip a little bit but I've had that forever. I sometimes leak a tiny tiny bit when I'm sitting or laying down but it's never anything I can feel so maybe it's in my head?
- Sometimes in my upper back I have a very mild burning type of pain. I have read that metastic prostate cancer spreads to your spinal cord usually.
I have no symptoms other then this. I do take vitamin d supplements, zinc supplements, and ecitlopram for anxiety even though I don't feel I have it. I tend to freak out over little things like this. Going to see my GP on Thursday.
I'm very young to have a cancer of the prostate... but I'm just wondering what else it could be. No infection which is what EVERYONE is saying it is, so what else could it be?
