In brief: A contortion

Best done in the shower or tub.
You can insert your middle finger in your rectum and work it upwards until you feel a spongy bulge under the inner wall. If soft, it is probably ok. But if you feel you need to check your prostate, then it is best done professionally by your doctor who knows the feel of others glands by his experience.
