According to Mayo Clinic, there are a few possibilities of complications that can occur after the initial diagnosis of prostate cancer and treatments.  Although prostate cancer is usually a slow growing cancer that can be managed and controlled if detected early, but if detected later, cancer could be on the verge of spreading to other parts of the body such as the bloodstream, lymphatic system, your bones, or other organs. Symptoms from such can range from fatigue, weakness, and weight loss.  If spread to certain body parts, it can cause the blockage of urine, and lead to kidney problems.  Bone pain and risk of fracture are also complications if the prostate cancer has spread.

There are various treatments under the standard of care for prostate cancer, and some can cause incontinence due to the treatments’ side effects.  However, this can be treated with other medications or surgery.  Because hormonal treatment is top options for advanced prostate cancer, erectile dysfunction is also common as a result of prostate cancer treatments.  But don’t be discouraged, medications, devices, and surgery are all options to treat this complication.
