The prostate is a soft walnut-shaped gland below the bladder that swells with fluid during sexual arousal. The prostate enlarges with age. Problems such as difficulty urinating or prostate cancer are associated with an enlarged prostate. According to an article in the "Valley Advocate," prostate massage can ease discomfort of an enlarged prostate. Prostate massage might not prevent prostate cancer, but massaging the prostate is linked with overall prostate health.
