Most men only notice their prostate when symptoms start to occur – before that it unobtrusively goes about its work. The prostate is one of the male sexual organs and has an important role in the reproduction.
The prostate gland, or simply prostate, is a muscular, gland-like organ. It is located between the bladder and the penis. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body. The prostate secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. The prostate is made up partly of muscle tissue that contracts during ejaculation to eject the secretions from the prostate and the seminal vesicles.
The size of the prostate can start to gradually increase as early as the age of 30. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition that is common in men and which becomes increasingly prevalent with age, is benign, as the name suggests, but due to the growth of the prostate it can create considerable difficulties with urination. Some symptoms are: frequent urges to urinate at night, a weak urinary stream, the feeling of incomplete bladder emptying and bladder infection.
Other prostate conditions are prostatitis and prostate cancer. You can find more information about these conditions and how they are treated here.
