What Is a Link Between Prostate Cancer and Leg Pain?

Leg pain can be a symptom of advanced prostate cancer that has spread to the lower spine and pelvis, compressing the nerves that connect to the legs, explains About.com. Prostate cancer most frequently spreads to the bones near the prostate. Prostate cancer sufferers more commonly experience urinary problems than leg pain, however. Cancer can spread to any area of the body and can cause any symptom, warns About.com.
