The distance between a man's scrotum and anus may indicate his ability to reproduce, said researchers from Baylor College of Medicine (www.bcm.edu/urology) in the journal PLoS ONE. "We have observed in animal studies that anogenital distance (the distance between the scrotum and anus) is an important measure for genital development and may be shorter in males with abnormal testicular development and function," said Dr. Michael Eisenberg, a male reproductive medicine and surgery fellow in the...

Scientists from Monash University have uncovered a new understanding of how male puberty begins. The key to their findings lies with a protein known as SMAD3 and the rate at which it is produced. Researchers, Associate Professor Kate Loveland and Dr Catherine Itman from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences have discovered through laboratory testing that half as much SMAD3 protein results in faster maturation than the norm, and an inability to create SMAD3 results in abnormal...

A new study published in the International Journal of Andrology reveals that semen quality has significantly deteriorated during the last ten years in Finland, a country that previously was a region with high sperm counts. At the same time, the incidence of testis cancer in the Finnish population showed a remarkable increase, following the worrying trends observed in several countries in Europe and the Americas. Led by Jorma Toppari, MD, PhD, of the University of Turku, researchers examined...

The number one objection voiced by the male to having a vasectomy done is the fear of pain. The Madajet lidocaine injector offers technology that allows for the painless infiltration of aneshesia without a needle. By offering the "No needle-No scalpel technique for a vasectomy, the urologists of the Northeast Georgia Urological Associates eliminate not only the fear associated with having a vasectomy but also the pain associated with the procedure. They take their motto concerning having a...

The majority findings of the study stated that 79% of men experienced an increase in length of at least 1.4 inches while 67% of men saw an increase in girth of at least 2.0 inches. At least 91% of the men stated that their girlfriends, wives or significant others remarked either a few times or many different times on their improved sexual performance while 84% of the men surveyed revealed that they'd gained either more or much more sexual stamina than they'd had in the past. A whopping 86% of...

British university scientists have discovered a species of bushcricket that boasts the largest testicles in the animal kingdom, representing 14 percent of their total body weight, according to a new study published Wednesday in the journal Biology Letters. In the study, biologists at the University of Derby and the University of Cambridge noted that the sizable testes of the Tuberous Bushcricket (Platycleis affinis)--the largest in relation to body weight in the world--point towards rampant...

Researchers have found that men who sit with a computer in their lap could be adversely affecting the quality of their sperm. Authors of the study, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, said there is not really a lot that can be done about it, short of putting the laptop on a desk. The researchers, led by Dr Yefim Sheynkin, a urologist at the State University of New York, hooked up thermometers to the scrotums of 29 young men who placed a laptop on their knees while using it....

Researchers have now found a way to propagate primary human Sertoli cells in the laboratory -- the first step, say investigators, to developing an artificial human testicle for reproductive research. Derived from the testis, it has been difficult to maintain Sertoli cells, the "nurse" cells responsible for overseeing sperm production, outside of the human body. San Francisco, CA (Vocus) October 25, 2010 After more than 30 years of unsuccessful efforts by numerous investigators,...

Scientists have developed a model that will enable them to investigate, for the first time, how human testes develop in baby boys while they are in the womb. Until now it has been impossible to study testicular development during pregnancy in humans and this discovery will enable researchers to understand the processes that can lead to the onset of testicular germ cell cancer (TGCC) in young adult life, and how factors, such as common environmental chemicals, might play a role. The research...

Prostate
2013-03-04 15:21:55

The male prostate gland acts as an exocrine gland in the male reproductive system. It is a firm, partly muscular, chestnut sized gland near the neck of the urethra in males. Formation and Orientation The prostate is usually formed within the ninth week of the embryonic stage in reproductive development. The prostate can be separated into either “lobes” or “zones”. When looking at a prostate divided into zones, there are four distinct regions. The first zone is the Peripheral...

Testicles

The testicles are the male reproductive organs that serve as a part of both the nervous and reproductive systems, acting as the ovaries’ counterpart. The testicles work to produce sperm and introduce chemicals such as testosterone. Formation and Orientation There are normally two testicles in the average male anatomy. These can be found in the protective sack called the scrotum. Two phases mark the growth of the testicles. During the embryonic stage, there is a possibility of this...
