I know ... you didn't know you had prostate health to worry about until you discovered problems like prostatititis or benign prostatic hyperplasia existed. That's when you discovered you had one! What's it for?
Your tiny prostate began to develop after puberty. At that time it was the size of a small plum, but it has grown since then.
The function of your prostate is to produce part of what makes up seminal fluid. When ejaculation occurs, the internal muscle and cells of the prostate contract and disperse that part of seminal fluid out through the penis along with sperm. This seminal fluid protects and nourishes the sperm as they travel the female reproductive tract. It contains a protein called PSA and this antigen's job is to keep the sperm flowing and liquid for travel.
So, such a tiny part of the male reproductive system, but oh! sooo painful when inflamed or swollen and in fact not healthy at all. Not to mention annoying, frustrating symptoms that literally stop you in your tracks and send you off to the bathroom yet again, or get in the way of sexual activity - not fun.
