Detection of Prostate problems is tricky because of where the prostate is located. It is a bulb-shaped gland that goes round the urethra just where it leaves the bladder, so when it swells up urination becomes a problem. In fact, the first symptoms include finding it hard to urinate, wanting to urinate often, a burning sensation when you do, or blood in the urine.
The prostate's job is to add acids, trace elements, and enzymes to seminal fluid at the moment of ejaculation; these activate the sperm and give semen its distinctive smell. For reasons we don't completely understand the prostate tends to enlarge and stiffen with age, but is probably connected with changing levels of various hormones.
Prostate cancer is also a very common problem.
