The prostate is a gland that sits below a man’s bladder and makes some of the fuid

(semen) that carries sperm. The prostate surrounds the urethra, the tube that car-

ries urine and semen down the penis and out of the body. As men age, the prostate

often enlarges, pressing on the urethra and making it more diffcult to urinate. This

condition, called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is not cancer. Symptoms of

BPH are very common in older men.
