Are symtpoms of MS and Prostate Cancer similar?

User Profile
I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for the last 10 years. There is currently a Prostate Cancer awareness campaign in the UK, and listening to the symptons on TV this morning, the bladder issues are very similar to those I have been experiencing for the last few years.
Is it just that the MS & Prostate Cancer symptons are alike or should I go and get tested by my GP.

Multiple sclerosis and prostate cancer have nothing in common. Prostate cancer has symtpoms very similar to benign prostate hyperplasia, which is very common disorder in males after 50 (frequent urination, difficult urination, etc.). Nonetheless, you might go to an urologist to examine your prostate.
