What is Prostate?

The prostate is a secondary sexual organ found in all male mammals. In the human, the prostate is a single, fused, midline structure wrapped around the urethra.The prostate and seminal vesicles produce the liquid portion of semen and are thought to be required for fertility. 

The position of the prostate complicates surgical access. The pointed prostatic apex lies in the  bottom of the pelvic cavity, where it attaches to the urethra. The back of prostatic surface rests against the rectum.The wide prostatic base rests against the bladder neck.. Behind the prostate and seminal vesicles is the thick Denonvillier's fascia. Resting over all these structures is the bladder, behind which are the ureters.
