The prostate gland is a little gland, normally about the size
of a walnut located under the bladder and in front of the rectum in males.

A narrow tube called the urethra, carries urine and semen through the penis and the prostate gland. Running along
the sides of the prostate are nerves, which control erectile function. Damage to these nerves caused from treatment
of an enlarged prostate can cause erectile dysfunction and infertility in males.

There is a blood test available for men, which doctors order to deterine the proper functioning of the prostate gland. Men with problems urinating or losing control of the bladder are often checked for prostate problems.

Men with concerns should always contact a physician.

The prostate is a gland of the male reproductive system that produces fluid for semen, which helps to transport sperm during the male orgasm. It is located in front of the rectum and just below the bladder. The prostate wraps around the urethra, the tube that carries urine out from the bladder through the tip of the penis.

Normally, the prostate is small—about the same size and shape as a walnut but many older men suffer from an enlarged prostate that can cause problems with urination. Almost all older and elderly men develop some form of prostate cancer, but this is rarely fatal, unless it is a very aggressive form.
