RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - As an article published on the CUF hospital website explains, the prostate is a small male gland, the size and shape of a walnut. It is located below the bladder and opposite the rectum, around the urethra. Its function is to produce a white liquid and fluid that is part of sperm. As one ages, the prostate tends to increase in size (it is unknown exactly why) and when it becomes enlarged it may cause health issues.
You should see a doctor if you spot any of the following symptoms.
- Need to urinate frequently;
- Waking up . . .
