What you Should Know about the Prostate Only men have a prostate. A part of the male reproductive system, the prostate is located just below the bladder. It surrounds the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder and semen through the penis and out of the body). The prostate’s main job is to help create semen by generating ejaculatory fluid. Semen is the fluid that helps protect and energize the sperm when a man ejaculates. The seminal vesicles are located next to the prostate. They also add fluid to semen. The prostate gland is in front of the rectum. The prostate gland may be a source of health problems in men. The most common problems are enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH), an inflammatory disease (prostatitis) and prostate cancer.
