User avatar Hello Soman,The prostate gland is a sexual gland in front of the rectum and just below the bladder.This gland has two lobes which sandwich the upper urethra.During puberty the first physiological enlargement occurs,and then in early middle age.During ejaculation prostate contracts which makes up the seminal fluid, along with sperms from the testes.
When we age the prostate can get enlarged and cause problems like urgency,hesitancy,dribbling,bladder dysfunction,and possible secondary infection.It would be advisable therefore for you to get a rectal examination as a routine check up and a cystoscopy..BPH ie Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy needs to be ruled out since it can lead to bladder obstruction.
Best wishes.
