    A helpful note to our readers: The correct spelling of this male gland is PROSTATE. There is no letter R. Here are some common misspellings to watch out for when you are searching for reliable information online: prostRate, (prostrate means to lie face down, it does not refer to the body part), prostRate disorders, prostRate cancer, prostRate disease, enlarged prostRate, prostRate treatment, prostRatitis, and so forth. All of these are incorrect spellings. We hope this helps you avoid confusion.


    All the articles in the Prostate area are derived from our monthly newsletter, Johns Hopkins Health After 50, our quarterly Johns Hopkins Prostate Bulletin, and our annual Johns Hopkins White Paper: Prostate. All of these publications are authored by the specialists at the Johns Hopkins James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute.
