Prostate Information

The prostate is a small gland about the size of a walnut which is situated just beneath the bladder. It produces some of the juices which are essential in helping the sperms to be fertile inside the woman. In addition the prostate is involved in controlling the flow of urine and directing the flow of semen to the outside world when a man ejaculates.

 Most men will have some degree of prostate enlargement as they get older and this may have effects on their ability to pass urine. In addition, prostate inflammation (in younger men) and prostate cancer (in older men) are extremely common problems.

Symptoms of prostate diseases often include difficulty in passing urine or controlling the flow of urine. Rarely infection, pain and blood loss can occur. More information is given in the link pages.
