What is the prostate gland?

It is a walnut sized gland located in front of the rectum and under the bladder. It produces a thick clear fluid that protects and nourishes the sperm.

What is Prostate screening?

This is testing normal men or early stages of prostate disease before the symptoms and signs of a disease are obviously manifest. This is done by:-

  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test              
  • Digital Rectal Exam (DRE)
  • Trans rectal Ultrasound
  • Prostate Biopsy

What is Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) ?

BPH is a common, noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. The enlarged prostate may compress the urinary tube (urethra), which courses through the center of the prostate, impeding the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra to the outside.
