Prostate gland, light micrograph. The prostate is a small gland found in men just below the bladder, surrounding the urethra (seen here at bottom right), the tube urine passes through. It produces a fluid, in the tubuloalveolar glands (outlined in brown), that forms part of the semen. Between the tubuloalveolar glands is a stroma of smooth muscle and connective tissue. The prostate and urethra are enclosed in a thin capsule (yellow). Magnification: x3 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
