Know your prostate
What is the prostate gland?
Only men have a prostate gland. It’s usually the size and shape of a walnut and is situated just below the bladder.
It surrounds the uretha, which urine and semen pass through.
The main function of the prostate gland is to make some of the semen that carries sperm.
What can go wrong with the prostate gland?
Potential problems include:
An enlarged prostate - this is the most common prostate problem and is not a form of cancer.
Prostatitis - an inflammation or infection in the prostate. This isn't a form of cancer either.
