If you have a TURP, a surgeon cuts away part of your prostate
to stop it pinching the tube that carries urine from your
bladder out through your penis. This tube is called the urethra.
Your prostate is usually about the size of a chestnut. It sits
under your bladder and is partly wrapped around your
urethra. It makes the milky fluid (semen) that comes out of your penis when you have an orgasm. The operation is called a transurethral resection because your surgeon will pass a tube through your urethra (transurethral)
and cut away your prostate (resect it).
