Unless you plan on foregoing prostate exams, I think you might be jumping the gun.

Eek a needle?

I'll take the camera up my bum, thanks.

Ha! Shows how much *you* know, my mom hasn't used surgical gloves in forever! oh wait...

Hey subby...there's a profound difference between a prostate screening and a colonoscopy. Just sayin'
 
2011-03-21 02:07:39 PM  
The article is talking about more invasive exams, prostate exams don't seem to be ruled out. Besides, I've had prostate exams, and I've had bloodwork, and truth be told, the sexual connotations aside, the prostate exam is a lot more pleasant than being stuck in the arm with a sharp needle and having my blood sucked out.

The doctor kept going on about how it "wasn't his favorite test..." but after having done it, I don't see what the big deal is.

Well, Dr. Longarms does colonoscopies his way, with a latex suit and a Nikon SLR in a zip-lock bag.

You might want to talk to your doctor. They can do blood tests for that now too.

yeah I think he was just going for the low hanging joke fruit. the snapping of gloves has nothing to do with them sticking a 2 foot snake cam up your bunghole. that's what they do before they stick a finger up your butt, which will still be (unfortunately) necessary.

Yeah, the PSA blood exam has been used for years. However, it doesn't tell the doc anything about the size of the prostate, so they still need to do a digital.

They could do an MRI. What if the tumor is on the Dark Side of the Prostate?

I'm pretty sure by that point it's just a FIA.

In the language of Big Medicine, "new and improved" just means "CHEAPER".

Still no replacement for the probe.
Easier if you just learn to enjoy it. You asked your (girl)friend to enjoy it.

And, an increased size anal sphincter is very useful in todays economic climate. Gas pump visits are a whole lot less painful.

Funny... since a rectal exam is performed for pretty much everything in medicine. Nice try, though :-)

That exam's nothing. I don't even hate the colonoscopy, 'cause you're knocked out. I do, however, resent the prep for the 'scopy, also resent that the US performs more 'scopys than anyone else per capita and STILL have one the highest incidences of death by colon cancer of any major country.


We check for it more & still die from it more. The UK has a better system.

You're not technically knocked out. They give you a dose of the date rape drug (seriously). You're still awake and cooperative but you don't care and don't remember much.
The prep for the scope is worse than the procedure itself.

I've often wondered if medical school entrance counselors have interesting things to say to women who decide to become proctologists.

Now all I need to do is find a female proctologist ...

After a couple of decades of sending scopes up a small segment of the population's ass, big medicine has failed to really affect the colon cancer death rate. They do an excellent job of finding surgical candidates to "practice" on.
"Why do we do this if it does not seem to help all that much?", one may ask.
"Because it is the only thing we get paid for", would be your answer.

Blood test will undoubtedly produce more profit for the industry. Count on it. Improve life? Maybe

After two weeks on opiates without the doctor telling me to take stool softener, I can only say I will applaud the day of the latex glove disappearing.

I hear they are like cockroaches. They crawl up the edge of the bed and wriggle their way in while you sleep.
