The Prostate Gland

Prostatic Gland

It is a glandular part of the reproductive system.  
It sits underneath the bladder, embraces the urethra 
(the tube that drains urine and semen out of the body). 
And shares the same membrane wall as the rectum.  
This men gland consists of several glandular lobes and is 
encased in a membrane called the stroma.  Part of the urethra tube  
passes through the prostate and is known as the prostatic urethra.

Sitting next to the prostatic gland there are  
other glands all connected in the production and 
draining of reproductive fluids, the seminal vesicles, 
cowpers glands, and the vas deferences.  

In general most men's prostate gland tend to  grow as they grow older.  
In a baby the prostate weighs just  a few grams.  
It grows under hormonal influence just at pre-puberty and in the mid life.  In pre puberty under the increase production of testosterone and in mid life it may be due to hormonal  imbalances between estrogen and testosterone production.  Men with low testosterone are more prone to enlarge prostate. Possibly can be due to estrogen production  remaining the same as the testosterone production drops. In a man estrogen is produced in the adrenal glands sitting above the kidneys.  Because generally speaking estrogen is a growth hormone.

Most men are for most part of their life not even aware 
they have this gland until it starts giving them discomfort and even pain.
