SYMPTOM SURVEY

WE ASKED MEN ABOUT
THEIR ADVANCED
PROSTATE
CANCER SYMPTOMS.

THIS IS WHAT THEY HAD
TO SAY

In a recent global survey, nearly half
of men with
advanced prostate cancer said that they ignore their symptoms

Don’t be silent. Speak Up
about any
symptoms you
are experiencing.

Bayer HealthCare and an international partnership of patient support groups conducted the world's largest survey in advanced prostate cancer with over 1,200 men and their caregivers. The goal of the survey was to see what signs and symptoms men with advanced prostate cancer have experienced. Hopefully their experiences will bring awareness to the problem and help other men recognize these signs and symptoms earlier.
