What is the Prostate?

The Prostate is a male sexual organ

The prostate is a walnut-sized, muscular gland located below the bladder in men. Its primary role is to produce some of the compounds found in semen that support sperm. During ejaculation, the prostate squeezes fluid into the urethra which is expelled as semen.

As a man ages, changes in his prostate can lead to urinary symptoms such as more frequent urination, sudden urgency, a weak stream, and more. Urinary symptoms are common - affecting about 40% of older men.

A healthy prostate means healthy urinary function.
