The prostate is a small, walnut-sized gland that forms part of the male reproductive system.
It is located just below the bladder, surrounding the urethra, the tube that carries urine and semen out of the body. The prostate produces a fluid that makes up part of semen, which nourishes and protects sperm.
The prostate gland undergoes two main periods of growth. The first occurs in early puberty when the prostate doubles in size, and the second phase of growth begins around age 25 and continues during most of a man’s life. As men age, the prostate gland tends to enlarge, which can lead to various health conditions.
