    What is a prostate?

    The prostate is a small gland just below the bladder surrounding the urethra. It has the shape and the size of a chestnut. The prostate is a gland that consists of a number of glandular tubes. These tubes produce and secrete prostatic fluid. Prostatic fluid keeps sperm alive and transports sperm cells during ejaculation. This makes the prostate very important for fertility.

    Typical complaints (symptoms) of prostate diseases are:
    • Weak urine flow.
    • Difficulty in starting urine flow
    • Need to urinate in short intervals and passing little urine each time
    • Dribbling, also sometimes a few drops in your trousers
    • The feeling that the bladder is not completely empty
    • A burning sensation while urinating
    • Continence problems, sometimes even incontinence
    • Having to get up at night a number of times to urinate

    Frequently it is older men who experience those symptoms, which are usually caused by a benign enlargement of the prostate. However, if you suffer from the above-mentioned complaints, please contact your (family) doctor.  

    Early diagnosis and prompt treatment

    An early diagnosis of prostate cancer is extremely important to increase the chances of survival for the patient. The average survival rate of men diagnosed as having metastatic prostate cancer is only two years, as compared to a survival rate of more than 10 years with 90% of the men diagnosed with prostate cancer in its early stage.
