Prostate Health

Take Control of Your
Prostate Health

Prostate care is important to a man's overall health. Located between the bladder and the penis, this walnut-sized gland secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. The urethra, a tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis, runs through the prostate.

As you age, your prostate grows larger, increasingly putting more and more pressure on the urethra. If your prostate gets too large, then urological problems can result. Most men do not think about their prostates until they have a problem "down there", causing pain and difficulty with urination and sexual function.

If you observe any of these, consult your urologist.

Prostate Condition Diagnosis

Depending on the condition, diagnosis of a prostate condition is made through a variety of tools. It may include:

  • Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) to assess the size, shape, and consistency of the gland.
  • Blood tests to check the levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA) and prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) produced by the cells of the prostate capsule (membrane covering the prostate).
  • Urodynamic tests to measure the volume and pressure of urine in the bladder and evaluate the flow of urine.

Regular prostate screenings can help detect the presence of cancer within the prostate gland as early as possible.

  • Eat a fresh, whole-foods diet.
