The prostate is located in front of the rectum, just under the bladder. In a young man, it weighs about 20 grams (which approximately corresponds to the weight of a chestnut). Under the influence of testosterone, it develops in size during a man’s life: small at birth, it develops up until puberty, stabilises in adulthood and then increases again from 40 years onwards. Prostate growth depends on the amount of intra-prostatic dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
