Find Out if You Have Prostate Problems
The prostate is a small gland, normally about the size and shape of a walnut. It is integral to a man’s sex organs, including the penis, scrotum, and testicles. The prostate is in front of the rectum and just below the bladder and wraps around the urethra, the tube that carries urine and semen from the bladder to the outside of the body. The prostate is very important in the reproductive process, as its fluid mixed with semen is important for a man’s ability to fertilize a woman’s egg and father a child. As a man ages, the prostate typically grows larger. However, if your prostate becomes too large, it can cause several health issues.
Classic symptoms of a prostate problem include frequent and urgent urination, bladder leakage, and/or a weak urine stream. If left untreated, long-term damage to the bladder and kidneys can occur.
