Many men aren’t sure what their prostate is, what it does, or when to call a doctor if they think they might have a problem. So, information is the best tool you have in dealing with this aspect of men’s health.
What Does My Prostate Do?
It is a small gland that is part of the male reproductive system. It’s supposed to be about the shape and size of a walnut.
It rests below your bladder and in front of your rectum. It surrounds part of the urethra, the tube in your penis that carries pee from your bladder.
The prostate helps make some of the fluid in semen, which carries sperm from your testicles when you ejaculate.
This Gland Can Grow
As you age, your prostate can become larger. It’s a normal part of aging for most men.
By the time you reach age 40, your prostate might have gone from the size of a walnut to the size of an apricot. By the time you reach 60, it might be the size of a lemon.
WHAT IS PROSTATE?
A small walnut-shaped gland in men that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. 💥
WHAT IS PROSTATE CANCER?
Prostate cancer is an abnormality involving the presence of growth(tumor,swollen) along the prostate gland.
Prostate enlargement and cancer begins when some cells in your prostate become abnormal. Mutations in the abnormal cells’ DNA causes the cells to grow and divide more rapidly than normal cells do. The abnormal cells continue living, when other cells would die. The accumulating abnormal cells form a tumor that can grow to invade nearby tissue. Some abnormal cells can also break off and spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body.
