Which usually comes first when prostate cancer has spread: a fast, high-rising PSA or pain at the site where the cancer has spread?

There is no proper answer for your question. Each PCa case is different and the advancement of the disease may have different conclusions. Some cancers produce lesser PSA serum even in low Gleason and some patients are lesser sensitive to pain. Cancer in bone does usually cause pain very nasty in some but this occurs in advanced cases when cells are of greater Gleason patterns, less diferenciated and therefore producing lesser PSA.
