Prostate, a male reproductive organ is a small, muscular gland which surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine and semen. It is situated just at the base of the urinary bladder. Prostate is made up of three types of cells or tissues i.e. stromal cells, glandular cells and smooth muscles. Prostate gland is divided into three zones namely, the transition zone, central zone and peripheral zone.

The main function of prostate is proper urination and to produce semen that carries sperms which are produced by testicles. It also forms prostate specific antigen (PSA), a protein which converts the semen into liquid. The growth and functions of prostate depends on the testosterone, male sex homone.

Look out for following signs to detect any complications with prostate gland.

  • Difficulty to pass urine i.e. straining or taking longer time to urinate.
  • Weak urine flow.
  • Sudden urge or frequent need to pass urine

The three major conditions that affects the prostate gland are as follows.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate enlargement is a most common prostate disorder associated with aging where the cell growth multiplies arbitrarily making the gland enlarged. This enlarged prostate exerts pressure on urethra that runs from the bladder through prostate which carries urine and makes it more troublesome for bladder to empty.
