November 21 2008 What is all the fuss about a Prostate

"What is the function of the prostate?"

Huh little did I know...this little walnut sized organ is made up of thousands of tiny fluid-producing glands. It is an exocrine gland that produces fluid that is part of semen which is stored with the sperm in the seminal vesicles. In addition to that it also plays a part in controlling the flow of urine, it is wrapped around the urethra from the bladder to the penis. It is also wrapped tightly by a nerve bundle that controls erectile function.

Needless to say it is involved with two major functions for us men.
