BRIEF ENLIGHTENMENT TALK ON THE PROSTATE GLAND HELD AT ITS AUGUST 2016 MEETING.

I thank the president for the invitation to deliver this brief enlightenment talk.

When conditions are appropriate, urine is voluntarily voided from the bladder via a single tube, the urethra, which passes through the penis to the exterior in males.
