Can prostate cancer cause severe pain in the legs?

default
Posted on Tue, 9 Oct 2018
Question: I have severe pain in my right leg below the thigh. It was diagnosed as Ilio Tibial. But after two weeks it is not better. Now it seems to have migrated around to the front of the leg. The only relief is in a recliner with my leg raised and bent a little. What else could it be besides the Ilio Tibial? Could it be my prostate cancer has spread to my bones? XXXXXXX
