In an attempt to educate some people on the need to attend the forthcoming conference of the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) Lagos Branch, a lady interjected that she had no business attending the conference simply because she had no Prostate.

The coming conference does not have gender barriers as it was designed to meet the needs of a man with prostate, a woman without Prostate but has a husband, son, friend or patient with prostate, a professional either male or female who must be knowledgeable about the causes, the effects and the diagnosis of the disease related to prostate.

Prostate is a small, walnut-shaped organ. It’s below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Its primary functions are to create fluids in the semen and force the semen through the urethra during ejaculation.

Many problems may arise from the malfunctioned prostates. These are benign prostatic hyperplasia BPH (Enlargement of prostate), Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) and Prostate cancer which is one of the killer diseases we have in the West African sub region.

The care of the patient and the diagnosis of the disease will take the center stage during the conference.
