One of the difficulties in diagnosing prostate cancer is that it often doesn’t present with many symptoms until the disease has progressed.
Waking up in the night to wee often has a name: nocturia.
Nocturia could be a sign of a growing tumour putting pressure on the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder.
If you notice you’ve been needing to wee more often, including in the middle of the night, you should go to the doctor to get it checked out.
