Testes: the job of the testes is to produce male cells called sperms and also to make sex hormones.Prostate gland: the job of the prostate gland is to secrete prostate fluid, one of the components of semen.The urethra: this is the tube inside the penis that carries urine or semen.

The organs of the male reproductive system are specialized for the following functions:*To produce, maintain and transport sperm and protective fluid (semen)*To discharge sperm within the female reproductive tract*To produce and secrete male sex hormones

diseasesHypospadias - literally “below the fleshy spike.” A condition in which the external urinary meatus (opening) opens anywhere below the tip of the penis rather than at the tip.Hydrocele - a fluid filled sac partially surrounding the testis. Manifests itself as a swelling on the side of the scrotum. May cause discomfort. Can be surgically corrected. And, who would most likely be doing the surgery? A urologist!
