What & Where is the Prostate
The prostate is a gland found only in men and is situated just below the bladder. The primary function of the prostate gland and it's 'partner' seminal vesicle, is to secrete a fluid that provides lubrication and nutrition for the sperm produced in the testes. The mix of all three is known as semen
One component of prostate fluid is an enzyme called Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
When a man passes urine, it flows from the bladder into the urethra and via a conduit in the prostate, out through the penis. Any pressure on the urethra by an enlarged or infected prostate will manifest itself as a symptom, most likely difficulty in urinating.
