What does the Prostate do?

 
The prostate contributes a fluid that, together with other fluids, makes up semen. Prostatic fluid composes 25% to 30% of the volume of a man’s ejaculate. The prostate encircles the urethra (the tubal duct that carries urine from the bladder out through the penis) this means that as the prostate grows with the increasing age of the man, the urethra can be impinged leading to bothersome urinary symptoms. There are two sphincter muscles on either end of the prostate. The internal or bladder-neck sphincter assists in urine retention and also functions to deflect semen down-stream by closing during ejaculation. The external sphincter is further from the bladder and is primarily responsible for urine flow control.
