The prostate is a small gland located beneath the urinary bladder and wrapped around the urethra. It is made of two lobes (or regions) completely surrounded by an outer tissue layer. The gland plays a role in both sex and urination – it produces the fluid that carries sperm during ejaculation, yet it also surrounds the urethra, the tube through which urine passes out of the body.
As a man matures, the prostate goes through two main periods of growth. The first occurs early in puberty, when the prostate doubles in size. At around age 25, the gland begins to grow again – hence prostate enlargement is a common part of aging, as it happens to almost all men as they get older. Benign Prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) or enlarged prostate gland is one of the most common health problems experienced by men. It is estimated that 50 – 60% of all men between the ages of 40 and 60 years and up to 90% of men over the age of 80 years have some degree of BPH.
