Background and Objective: Prostate cancer is reported to affect approximately 70% of men and is the second leading cause of death in men. An early diagnosis and screening can reduce the associated complications and mortality rate.
Case Presentation: A 52-year-old man complaining of a backache for eight months reported to the hospital. The initial examination showed him to be suffering from an infiltrative bone tumor. The patient was initially diagnosed with multiple myeloma and was provided chemotherapy. Owing to a lack of response of the patient to the treatment, he was referred to an oncologist. Further evaluations showed him to be suffering from metastatic prostate cancer, and appropriate treatment was initiated.
 
Conclusion: Despite the advances in diagnostic tools and increasing accuracy of tests, clinical examination is important and considered a key component of the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
