The prostate is a “walnut-sized” gland that, together with the seminal vesicles, produces the fluid part of semen. It is located just below the bladder and surrounds the urethra, the tube through which urine passes through the penis.
Problems with the prostate are usually connected to aging: the older you are, the more likely your chances of experiencing prostate problems and symptoms. Young men are rarely affected by these disorders.
After age fifty, however, disorders of the gland are among the most common of men’s health complaints. Eighty percent of all prostate cancer diagnoses, for instance, are made after age sixty-five, and by age seventy, ninety percent of all men display at least some symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
Prostate symptoms include, frequent urination, dribbling, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and burning upon urination, etc.
Oftentimes there are infections and other toxins in the prostate that need to be cleared out. As we clear out the infections, the symptoms dissipate quite readily.
