Male sex gland

The prostate is a gland that only men have. It is located below the bladder and surrounds the urethra, through which urine flows out of the bladder. The prostate produces a clear fluid that is mixed with sperm from the testicles during ejaculation. This fluid contains various substances important for sperm function, including enzymes, hormones and nutrients. The prostate fluid ensures that the sperm remain optimally mobile and protected from the acidic environment in the urethra. The prostate plays an important role in men’s reproduction and sexual health. The prostate undergoes a natural growth process throughout life. However, some men may experience a benign enlargement of the prostate called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This can cause problems with urination because the enlarged prostate can press on the urethra. However, it can also happen that the prostate degenerates and prostate cancer develops. It is advisable to carry out regular check-ups in order to identify and treat possible problems at an early stage.
