Prostate & Urological Health

The prostate gland isn’t that big – about the size of a walnut – but it plays an important role in men’s reproductive health. Located below the bladder and in front of the rectum, it wraps around the upper part of the urethra, which carries urine out of the body. Because of its placement, the prostate can affect urination and sexual function. The urology team at SSM Health provides expert prostate care, working with you to find the best individualized treatment for your prostate condition.

Connect with a Physician

The decision to have regular screening is a personal choice that depends on many factors, including age, level or risk, and family history. It’s important to speak with your SSM Health provider about any symptoms you are experiencing, concerns you may have, and the potential benefits of regular screening. Your physician can also discuss ways to optimize your health so you can get the most out of life.

Our health care professionals offer the latest in prevention, detection and treatment of prostate-related health conditions. These are some of the most common conditions affecting men - and in many cases when detected early, can be treated.
