In brief: Prostate gland
The prostate is a male gland that is found at the base of the urinary bladder.
Its main role in the body is to provide a large amount of fluid into what finally becomes semen.

In brief: Makes semen fluid
The prostate gland is located at the outlet of the bladder.
The urinary channel runs right through the middle of the prostate gland like a tunnel through the center of a mountain. The prostate gland's main function is to make semen. This fluid transports and nourishes sperm cells. The prostate plays an important role in male fertility.
