Male Reproductive System - Structures & Procedures

Cowper's GlandsSecrete thick mucus acting as a lubricant
Cowper's GlandsBulbourethal Glands; located on either side of the urethra just below the prostate gland and their ducts open into the urethra
EpididymisTube at the upper part of each testis where sperm is temporarily stored
GameteSex cell
PenisMale sex organ; composed of erectile tissue
Glans PenisSensitive region at the tip of the penis
PrepuceForeskin, covers and protects the glans penis
Prostate GlandLies under the bladder and surrounds the upper end of the urethra in the region where the vas deferens enters the urethra
Prostate GlandSecretes a thick fluid (part of the semen) that aids the motility of the sperm
ScrotumExternal sac that encloses and supports the testes
ScrotumSuspended from the pubic arch behind the penis and lies between the thighs
SemenEjaculatory fluid that contains sperm plus the secretions of the seminal vesicles, prostate gland and Cowper's glands
Seminal VesiclesGlands located at the base of the urinary bladder, opening into the vas deferens as it joins the urethra
Seminal VesiclesSecretes a thick, yellow substance that nourishes the sperm cells and forms much of the volume of ejaculated semen
Ejaculatory DuctIn the seminal vesicles passes through the prostate gland and enters the urethra
SpermMale gametes
SpermManufactured by the seminiferous tubules with the testes
TestesPlural of testis also known as testicles
TesticlesTwo small egg-shaped glands that produce sperm and testosterone
TestosteroneMale sex hormone
TestesMale gonad where the gametes are produced
UrethraIn the male, performs both a reproductive and urinary function
UrethraPasses through the penis to the outside of the body
Vas DeferensCarries the sperm up into the pelvic region, around the urinary bladder, and down toward the urethra
VasectomyMale sterilization procedure in which a portion of the vas deferens is surgically removed and the free ends are tied or sealed
CircumcisionSurgical removal of the foreskin of the penis
OrchidectomySurgical removal of one or both testes
ProstatectomySurgical removal of all or part of the prostate gland
TURPTransurethral resection (surgical removal) of the prostate
LigatedIn a vasectomy the free ends of the vas deferens are tied with sutures
FulguratedIn a vasectomy the vas deferens is sealed by means of a high-frequency electric current
OccludedIn a vasectomy, the free ends of the vas deferens are blocked with metal clips
Bulbourethal GlandsCowper's glands
