Prostate Diseases

The prostate, or the walnut-sized gland that produces the fluid that mixes with sperm to make semen, can be affected by a few different conditions. Prostate problems are relatively common in men of all ages: Younger men are more likely to develop prostatitis, or prostate inflammation, while older men are more likely to be affected by prostate enlargement. Board-certified urologist Dr. Alan Yamada in Arcadia, California, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate diseases. If you’re in the San Gabriel Valley or surrounding Los Angeles County area, and you’d like to learn more, call Foothill Urogenital Health to schedule your appointment today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your prostate is a small gland in your reproductive system that’s situated at the neck of your bladder, where it surrounds your urethra, or the tube that carries urine from your bladder out through your penis. The urethra is also what carries semen out through your penis during sexual climax, or ejaculation.
