Prostate health

Prostate complications are among the most common urological conditions affecting men. The prostate gland is part of the male reproductive system. It is located in front of the rectum, just below the bladder, and is about the size of a walnut. Many prostate problems are quite common and may happen to men of all ages.

Prevention is the key to prostate health, but aging raises your risk for prostate problems. At Wayne State University Physician Group, our physicians and other health care specialists have the experience and expertise to provide comprehensive care for prostate conditions.
