The size of the prostate varies with age. In normal adults prostate weighs approx 20 gms (Ref.Text book of Pathology by Dr. Harsh Mohan,Prof. & Head ,Govt Medical college Chandigarh) but it can become significantly larger in older men. The rate of enlargement varies, but by 50 years over half of men have an enlarged prostate.
