THE FACTS

Because prostate cancer
can spread,

IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW
WHAT TO LOOK FOR

If you are currently living with advanced prostate cancer, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you having trouble doing regular activities?
  • Are you taking more medicine for pain?
  • Are you living with aches, discomfort, or pain you can’t explain?

You may think these things are occurring because of your age, a busy day, or a simple change in routine. You also may think that over-the-counter or prescription pain medicine is the only solution to treat these symptoms.

But these aches, pains, and lifestyle changes could be a sign or symptom of your prostate cancer spreading to bone.

Speak Up. Listen to what your body is telling you. And talk to your doctor about which treatment may be right for you.

Nearly 3 million men with prostate cancer

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 1.1 million men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012, and about 307,000 men died that year.
