9 of the most common symptoms are:
T2aThe cancer is in one side of the prostate.
T2bThe cancer is in both sides of the prostate.
T3The cancer has begun to spread outside the prostate and may involve the seminal vesicles.
T3aThe cancer extends outside the prostate but not to the seminal vesicles.
T3bThe cancer has spread to the seminal vesicles.
T4The cancer has spread to tissues next to the prostate (other than the seminal vesicles), such as the bladder's external sphincter (muscles that help control urination), the rectum and/or the wall of the pelvis.
Stage A is early cancer. The tumor is located within the prostate gland and cannot be felt during a DRE.
In Stage C, prostate cancer is more advanced. Stage C indicates that the tumor has spread outside the prostate to some surrounding areas, but not to other organs. This stage of cancer can usually be detected by a DRE.
In Stage B, the tumor is considered to be within the prostate and can be felt during a DRE.
In Stage D, the cancer has spread to the nearby organs and usually to distant sites, such as the bones or lymph nodes.
