Prostate Problems: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:40 by admin
The prostate gland is part of the male reproductive system and is located below the bladder. The prostate produces fluids that make up the semen. After age fifty, many men suffer from benign and / or cancerous growths in the prostate gland. Some of these growths may be detected by a prostate specific antigen test (PSA). While the PSA test is not known for its accuracy, it is a good indicator of whether further testing is advisable.

Prostatitis is an enlargement of the prostate. Prostatitis is typically caused by an infection, and antibiotics may relieve the condition if it is caused by a bacterial infection.
