Compared to low-grade cancer, Proscar high-grade prostate cancer associated with use of the drug spreads and grows more quickly. Symptoms which may indicate Proscar prostate cancer in users may include blood in the urine or semen; bone pain; difficulty urinating; leg swelling; discomfort in the pelvic areas; and decreased force in the stream of the urine.
