The prostate is a small gland that produces secretion in the male reproductive system. It is located under the bladder, in front of the rectum, the last part of the large intestine, and surrounds the urethra, where the urine flows out of the body. The main function of the chestnut-sized prostate is to secrete a portion of the seminal fluid and combine it with sperm to form the seminal fluid called semen. The prostate of a healthy adult weighs about 20 to 25 grams and is about 4 cm wide, 3 cm high and 2 cm thick. It can be affected by various diseases, including cancer, and can be detected by medical examination and by the PSA value in the blood (prostate-specific antigen).
