What is Cowper gland?
Cowper gland meaning These glands are located below the prostate on either side of the membranous urethra. They resemble peas in both size and shape. A duct about 2.5 cm long connects each of them with the urethra. Cowper's glands, like the prostate, secrete an alkaline, mucous fluid which makes up about 5 percent of the semen. These glands are also supplied with muscular tissue which aids in expulsion of sperm during ejaculation.
