WHAT IS PROSTATE?!!

Some Nigerians come to the clinic and are just hearing about the Prostate gland for the first time in their lives. So, the prostate (from Greek προστ?της, prostates, literally "one who stands before", "protector", "guardian") is an exocrine gland of the male reproductive system in most mammals. The function of the prostate is to secrete a slightly alkaline fluid, milky or white in appearance, that in humans usually constitutes roughly 30% of the volume of the semen. The alkalinity of semen helps neutralize the acidity of the vaginal tract, prolonging the lifespan of sperm.The prostate also contains some smooth muscles that help expel semen during ejaculation.

A healthy human male prostate is classically said to be slightly larger than a walnut. The mean weight of the normal prostate in adult males is about 11 grams, usually ranging between 7 and 16 grams. The prostate surrounds the urethra just below the urinary bladder and can be felt during a rectal exam.

The prostate does not have a capsule; rather an integral fibromuscular band surrounds it. It is sheathed in the muscles of the pelvic floor, which contract during the ejaculation. The divisions of the prostate are known as anterior, lateral, posterior and median lobes.

As men get older, the lateral lobes may enlarge significantly, leading to a detectable increase in prostate size during rectal examination as well as a physical restriction in urine flow. The median or middle lobe may also become enlarged, causing a functional valve that may be responsible for urinary complaints in middle-aged men.

The clinical issues of prostate disease include prostatitis, benign prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Vantage Medical Centre offers a special Prostate assessment clinic at an affordable price, without compromising on the quality of service.
