In brief: Pain

Pain is by far the most common symptom. Less commonly, a fracture may be the cause for discovery and rarer still paralysis from spinal cord compression with vertebral involvement.
An xray such as ct or bones scan may show this as well. Psa level is not a sign of bone metastasis, but very elevated psa levels may predict a high risk of metastasis.
