What is the Prostate Gland??

The prostate gland is a small, walnut-sized gland that is part of the male reproductive system. It is located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum and surrounds the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine and semen out of the body.

The prostate gland produces and secretes a fluid that helps to nourish and transport sperm. This fluid mixes with sperm from the testes and other fluids from the seminal vesicles to form semen, which is ejaculated during sexual activity.

The prostate gland is regulated by hormones, particularly testosterone, and can grow larger as men age. In some cases, an enlarged prostate can cause problems with urination and other health issues. It's important for men to monitor their prostate health and undergo regular prostate screenings as they get older to detect any potential issues early on.
