Prostate Infection Panel (MALES ONLY)
- (QUEST DIAGNOSTICS)Description:
Prostatitis is swelling and tenderness of the prostate gland. It is a common problem in men. The prostate gland is a doughnut-shaped gland located between the base of the penis and the bladder. The average prostate is about the size of a small peach. It surrounds the urethra, which is the tube through which urine and semen pass. The prostate makes the fluid that nourishes and carries sperm.
