What does the prostate do?

Only men have a prostate, and its job is to make seminal fluid, which is mixed with sperm to make semen.

What does it look like?

It's a walnut-sized gland located just below the bladder between the penis and the anus.

How do you know if a prostate is healthy?

Urine can be a good indicator of prostate problems. If your stream changes you should see your GP. Other symptoms to look out for include more frequent urination, testicular pain or when ejaculating, erectile problems, and blood in the urine. If you experience any of these the advice is to see your GP.
