Prostate is an accessory gland of male reproductive system situated in the pelvis beneath the urinary bladder and anterior to the rectum. It is about the size of a walnut in young males. Its size increases with age, with most rapid increase occurring after puberty (under the inﬂuence of androgenic hormones, especially testosterone) until the age of 30 years, approximately.
It provides the passage for urethra through its center and contributes about 25% to the volume of the ejaculate. It also provides a passage for the ejaculatory ducts of the seminal vesicles (a pair of glands situated behind the prostate), which drain their secretions (that make-up most of the semen volume) into the prostatic urethra.
It consists of mainly 3 zones: a transition zone (surrounding the urethra and constituting about 10% of the prostate); a central zone (surrounding the ejaculatory ducts and constituting around 25% of the prostate); and a peripheral zone (incompletely covering the other two zones and constituting bulk of the prostate).
Adenocarcinoma (affecting secretory cells of the prostate) is the most commonly encountered (more than 95% of all cases) prostate cancer.
