Prostate is a small gland approximately the size of a walnut. It is located under the bladder and in front of the rectum. Urethra is the tube through which urine and semen are conveyed out of the body from the bladder and the rectum is the organ located behind the prostate and the bladder. Although the prostate is not essential for life, it is of utmost importance for reproduction. The prostate usually grows during adolescence, and is controlled by the the male hormone testosterone and DHT, its byproduct. Testosterone is a hormone that is typically made in the testes, but a small amount is made in the adrenal glands located above the kidneys. This hormone promotes both development and maintenance of male sex characteristics.
