I have a pian in my groin area bk of my testicals could it be related to my prostate and could it be prostate cancer?

Testicular pain: Go see your family physician. It's important to evaluate for testicular torsion, a surgical emergency, with sudden onset. Gradual pain can be caused by epididymytis. In your age group, testicular cancer is more of a concern than prostate ca. Testicular ca can present with an enlarged testicle, lump or swelling, pain is rare. Prostate cancer occurs in older men and not with testicular pain. ...Read more

I have a pain in my groin or what feels like the back of my right testical im not 100% sure were it is but could it be my prostate or prostate cancer?

Not likely: The prostate is located deep in the pelvis, below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancers rarely cause pain. You are 23 years old, so it is much more likely to be either a musculoskeletal strain (groin area) or testicular inflammation (many causes.) http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003160.Htm. ...Read more

See MD: It could be an infection/inflamation like epididymitis, orchitis or testicular tosion, hernia, etc. You should see your md and have proper evaluation that will include an ultrasound to your testicle. Most likely, this has nothing to do with your prostate cancer history in your father. ...Read more

What exactly is the symptom of prostate cancer ?

History/Exam/Tests: Prostate cancer (cap) does not generally have symptoms until it is fairly advanced and untreatable. Thus screening for cap has been done by asking for any family history of cap, examining the prostate through a rectal exam and by checking a test called prosate specific antigen(psa). If the exam or psa are abnormal, an ultrasound-guided biopsy through the rectum acquires tissue to assess for cap. ...Read more

When one has intermittent bone pain in the hips, is that a symptom of prostate cancer?

When one has intermittent bone pain in the hips, is that a symptom of prostate cancer?

Unlikely: If you haven't had a diagnosis of prostate cancer (pca) before, then hip pain is highly unlikely to be the first sign. If your blood psa level was low, then you could practically rule pca out. No need to do this test except to relieve you of unnecessary worry. Even if you do have pca diagnosis, other causes are more likely. It's even more unlikely if the pain is intermittent on both sides. ...Read more
