Anatomy of the Prostate Gland

Prostate gland and its location in the body

The prostate gland is a small, walnut-shaped organ that lies just below a man's bladder. It surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body through the penis.

The prostate gland produces most of the fluid in semen.
