The prostate is a gland of external secretion, strictly male organ located just beneath the bladder (assuming the standing position). In fact, the prostate is the beginning of the urethra. The purpose of the prostate is to create a secret diluting ejaculate, also it blocks the flow of urine from the bladder during erection. The prostate gland consists of smooth muscles that help to push through semen during ejaculation. The body of the prostate gland is conventionally divided into lobes. To feel its posterior surface finger rectal examination (palpation) is used.
Prostate function is to control the organs of the endocrine system (via hormones of the hypophysis, testicles, adrenal cortex). The full role of the prostate in proper functioning of the male body has not discovered yet, but most people compare this part of the body with the heart.
A mature man has a prostate corresponding to the size of a large walnut (18 – 26 cm3, weight is almost the same 18 – 26 grams). To determine its mass, multiply the volume by the density ratio of the body – 1.04 – 1.06 (the value varies, because it is not a constant and depends on certain factors).
Like any other organ, the prostate is subject to several diseases. The most common is prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate cancer (prostate carcinoma). Statistics of listed diagnoses that is offered by medical establishment does not correspond to reality as a therapeutic treatment has an extremely low efficiency and it is commercialized by doctors. As the result, the number of patients who look for care in formal medical institutions reduces. In addition, the same statistics is distorted by numerous fraudulent organizations for the purpose of intimidation of patients mainly through advertising on TV and the Internet in countries with high level of corruption.
