prostatitis verses enlarged prostate!
- Over 50% of men in their 60’s and as many as 90% in their 70s or older have symptoms of an enlarged prostate gland (BPH)
- Out of the 203,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer, around 30,000 will die of it (each year)
- prostatitis affects around 35% of men in the 50’s and older
OK lets put this into plain English!
The prostate gland
The prostate gland about the size of a walnut, which surrounds part of the urethra. (the urethra – that long tube that takes urine from the bladder out of the body via the penis, girls you have a shorter one and that’s part of the reason women get bladder infections more than men.). The urethra is also responsible for transporting semen during ejaculation.
