raysmith: i dont get it.

It's completely unprofessional. The right way is to squeeze the left one saying, "Honk-honk" followed by the right one, "Toot-toot".

"He put his hands on my breasts feeling them rather than feeling a little bit."

WTF?

and this is the exact reason I hate breast exams, but still not as much as pelvics.

Doctoring seems to be on its way through a latent process of industrialization. With the increase specialization and increasingly centralized management, you may even see Doctor's unions as they begin to consider themselves common service industry workers, and campaign more aggressively to limit entrants to the profession.

As a rule, the most socially necessary and difficult jobs pay the least, and carry the most liability. Having the handle the diseased limbs and constitutions of geriatrics and hordes of obese beasts and other people unable or unwilling to care for themselves has to be one of the most ego shattering daily expectations any service worker might expect.

It's like the industry side of medicine is just entering the late 19th century.

I used to work at a bar. Employed at the bar across the street there was the neighborhood "hot couple." One night off my girlfriend and I hit the place across the street where we proceeded to hang out with the female from the "hot couple." She insisted we feel her boobs, which felt like thin-skinned balloons 33% filled with tapioca.

She excitedly said, "Gross, huh!?!?!?" before we could reply. Later, my girlfriend and I agreed.

I would have been factitious had I made up a reason for the exam guy to be there, and facetious if I had thought prostrate exam was funny.

As it is, I just can't spelll.
 
2005-04-19 04:18:13 AM  
898- the way a doctor really checks for lumps is feeling using only fingertips in either a circular or up-and-down pattern, depending on the doctor. Grabbing the breast with the whole hand is not a way to check for it. Also, ANY male doctor who will be doing any examination where disrobing of a female patient is concerned is required to ask if she would like a female chaperone in the room.
 
2005-04-19 04:23:33 AM  
Alagfuin,

Same here in Estonia. I escaped without the nut exam, but a few of my friends had their jewels firmly fondled by the hairy female nurse. Oh, the joys of compulsory military service.
 
2005-04-19 04:25:48 AM  
See, this is why women should see female doctors.

(can't imagine having a male gynecologist -- it's like an auto mechanic who doesn't own a car)

(yes, I realize the issues if the doctor or the patient is gay)

Yes. You beat me to my comment on parellel sentence structure. Do people actually talk/think like that, or is it just a written thing?

Actually since it happened in the past, it should be "exclaimed, "Nice, but the left one is a little heavier than the right. Care to explain?"

Not necessarily. The grammatic structure seems to be correct, but indicates the doctor first denied professional misconduct, then exclaimed "Nice".

But just like with Breast Cancer, it appears that by flushing out all the passageways regularly (in the case of women, this means breastfeeding after pregnancy, in the case of men, ejaculation at least five times a week) significantly reduces your chances for contracting the disease. There was a study posted to Fark last year that showed that men who had five ejaculations a week showed a statistically significant reduced chance of contracting prostate, penile and testicular cancer by preventing the buildup of carcinogens. Which is as good an excuse for chronic masturbation as I've ever heard, plus, it's way more fun than breastfeeding.

Reveilled:

...it appears that by flushing out all the passageways regularly (...ejaculation at least five times a week) significantly reduces your chances for contracting the disease. There was a study posted to Fark last year that showed that men who had five ejaculations a week showed a statistically significant reduced chance of contracting prostate, penile and testicular cancer by preventing the buildup of carcinogens...

Well kind of, but not really. The whole flushing thing isn't really proven, they don't know if its really a build-up of carcinogens or if its hormonal (which is what they're leaning towards now). There's slightly significant evidence for ejaculation >21 times per month reducing cancer (JAMA, 4/7/04), but that's only for prostate cancer, not penile or testicular. For penile cancer, the best protection is abstinence, don't smoke(!), and get yourself circumcised. Abstinence because HPV is found in ~80% of penile tumors, and although it is an STD, unlike with other STDs, condoms aren't even close to being 100% effective against HPV transmission. HPV is also nearly the sole cause for cervical cancer. Smoking causes about a 4.5 times greater risk for penile cancer. Circumcision in early childhood may help prevent penile cancer by eliminating phimosis (a narrowing of the foreskin over the head of the penis), which is a significant risk factor for the disease. Sorry if this seems like a long rant. Its late and my friend just had a baby so Im too excited to sleep. So in review, dont have sex, dont smoke, and chop some of the skin off of your dick and youre much less likely to contract a disease that is amazingly rare to begin with.

If she thinks that was bad, she clearly hasn't visited the docs who practice at boobexamscam.com.
 
2005-04-19 05:50:16 AM  
I dunno this seems a bit silly to me...maybe I just don't understand because I'm a guy? But here's how I see it.

The doctor has to do his job. From the article, he clearly had good reason to do a breast exam. So, he's got to grab her boobies.

He didn't ask if she wanted someone else in the room.
She didn't say she wanted someone else in the room nor did she object to the exam. That seems fine to me.

So, what we've got here, is a doctor that, for medical reasons, needed to feel up some ladies boobs. According to the article he said 'Oh, nice'. Now, I think what they really mean is she claims he said 'Oh, nice'. I've had doctors say crap like that all the time. Not in a sexual mannor, but during physicals all the time.

"Okay, take a deep breath. Good. Again, that's nice. One more time now".
"Hold still, okay, good"
"Follow the light with your eyes. Uh-huh, Nice."

Now, people can't control what they enjoy, what they like, or what they find sexual appealing. Regardless of what your doctor says, or how he acts - odds are, if you are an attractive female, a male doc is going to want to bang you. It's really beyond his control. He can only control if he acts on it or not.

So really, I don't see what the deal is. If she was hot and he made up some illness he needed to test for that required her to dance naked, or something along those lines - then yeah, he's doing something wrong. But, a women came in and *she* complained about her breasts. He felt them up. There ya go. End of story.

On top of that, let's be realistic, how many guys want to feel up some 30 year old lady with Crohn's Disease? Now, I'm not saying that to be an ass, but let's be realistic. Without a motive few people are going to bother committing a crime. As a doctor, would you rather A.) Spend 30 bucks to feel up some 19 year old hottie at a strip clue while she dances naked on your lap or B.) Risk losing your job over the chance to feel up some 30 year old and say 'Nice' - when you could have simply felt her up and not said 'Nice'?

I certainly could be wrong - but in my mind, it's far more likely he said "Nice" in a non-sexual way and she misunderstood or that he didn't say anything she's either making it up or confused. Maybe she thought his exam was unprofessional, but in fact, it was just normal. Again, not saying I'm right, or that people shouldn't look into it, stuff like this does happen I'm sure - but I'm going to go ahead and stick with 'Innocent until proven guilty' on this one.

Do you have a link that shows getting circumcised will reduce the chances of penile cancer?

I googled and found this:
"Penile cancer is one of the rarest cancers - rarer even than breast cancer in men - and figures for it are hard to come by. Circumcised men get penile cancer at about the same tiny rate as intact men. Studies that seemed to show a correlation had not been corrected for age; penile cancer is a disease of old men, and the old men with cancer in the studies had simply been born at a time when circumcision was less customary than when the younger men without cancer were born. When men of the same ages were compared, the correlation vanished."

From: http://www.circumstitions.com/Cancer.html (Pops? I think?)
 
2005-04-19 06:03:03 AM  
"As she was undoing her bra the doctor took over, pushed her bra upwards and said: 'Oh, nice' and took hold of her breast and squeezed."

The woman, who is in her 30s and suffers from Crohn's disease, said the doctor helped her lift her bra above her breasts when he saw her struggling to unclasp it.


Maybe, just maybe, he was saying "nice" because he was able to slide the bra up and over her breasts. She was struggling, and then he discovered that she needn't worry with the clasp. Depending on breast size and bra style, you can't always do the "slide upwards" maneuver.
That's sure as hell what I'd say in court!
 
2005-04-19 06:07:27 AM  
RobDude: So if you went in for a prostate check and the doctor suddenly helps you take your pants down and says "oh, nice" when he sees your ass, then takes his time casually spreading your cheeks and looking around, you wouldn't feel uncomfortable?

RobDude:

Hey sorry, I don't have a link b/c its from a journal database that you have to pay for, but here's the paper's title and whatnot if you want to go to the library or have a pubmed resource. It's spankin' new, April 11, 2005, and a case-control study, so its looking at alot of stuff that maybe circumstitions.com wasn't privy to.

Penile cancer: Importance of circumcision, human papillomavirus and smoking in in situ and invasive disease. by Daling, et al.

Here is their summary of their info: "Among men not circumcised in childhood, phimosis was strongly associated with development of invasive penile cancer (OR = 11.4, 95% CI 5.0-25.9)"

OR=odds ratio and the higher it is over 1, the greater the likelihood of an association. And again phimosis is the narrowing of the foreskin over the head of the penis, which is only possible in non-circumcised guys.

So, I guess that's like having a female neurologist.
