Join the Conversation: How Long It Takes to Get a Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Prostate cancer can be difficult to diagnose. It often shows no symptoms in the early stages. And even when potential symptoms appear, like trouble urinating or erectile dysfunction, they could be mistaken as part of aging or something else.

We want to learn more about your path to getting diagnosed with prostate cancer. Did you discover it early, or were warning signs missed? Did your doctor correctly diagnose you, or were you initially misdiagnosed? Explore our forums below to talk about your experience, and see what others have shared.
