The prostate is a small gland that is found only in men and is located between the penis and the bladder. The urethra, which is the tube that goes from the bladder to the end of the penis, passes directly through the prostate. The prostate has the job of secreting a fluid that helps to protect sperm as it passes through during ejaculation.

Of all the cancers that men can get, prostate cancer is the most common. Thankfully, it is usually treatable and out of every 41 men that get it, only 1 will die statistically speaking. Regardless, it is a good sign to know what the symptoms are to help ensure it is diagnosed and treated as soon as possible

1. Leaking Urine

It is important that wild animals do what they can to not reveal themselves unnecessarily to predators. This is one reason why we tend to store up our urine until such a point where it can be released in one go. If it were to be released in small amounts, it would leave a trail that predators could easily follow.

Some medical conditions, however, can cause urine to leak out involuntarily. In the wild, this could be very dangerous for the patient. In civilization, it can be very embarrassing. This symptom is a sign that you should get medical assistance regardless of the suspected cause.
