In brief: Varies.
Some people with prostate cancer may not have any symptoms and are found with a prostate nodule on routine examination or have blood work that shows a high psa level.
The screening recommendations for prostate cancer are debated/controversial, so have a discussion with your doctor. Your doctor can discuss the risks and benefits of screening.

Other symptoms may be blood in the urine or progressive difficulty in urinating, i.e. poor urinary stream, and generally signs of a blockage in the urinary passage.

In brief: Mostly none
Since a simple blood test and rectal exam pick up most prostate cancers before they are large or involved enough to cause symptoms, most prostate cancers are diagnosed without any symptoms.
Understand that while some prostate cancers can cause urinary symptoms, many other benign things can also cause urinary symptoms.. Medications, benign enlargement of the prostate, bladder issues.

In brief: Urine symptoms.
With usage of psa we find cancer often with no symptoms.
However if symptoms occur they would be frequent urination, decreased urine flow or stream, frequent urination while sleeping, burning or painful urination, inability to urinate at all, erectile dysfunction.
