UFIA pants that raise money for cancer research? This will be a Fark best seller!

I'd be more impressed if he walked around with a rubber finger shoved in his ass, but I guess this will do.

That's not the finger that's usually used for a prostate exam......

If your doc does the exam with a hand on each shoulder, ask questions.
 
2012-08-11 09:37:13 AM  
Hm, I figured that his method would involve booze.

Had a girl do that to me once.
Didn't realize she was a Doctor.

Good on ya, John, but... nobody's going to ask me to wear a ribbon over this, are they?

I mean, people are working on the problem anyway, and it's not like a man in his forties can get a checkup without someone mentioning what standard diagnostic routine or routines would be a good idea for them.

Who's unaware in the first place?

I feel the same way about all those breast cancer awareness programs too.

I was at the Heritage this spring on Hilton Head and there were a dozen Daly Fanbois following him on the course all wearing his outrageous shorts. Funny as hell to see.

About 35,000 men die every year from prostate cancer and about 35,000 women die every year from breast cancer. Do an honest comparison to the number of pink vs blue ribbons, the number of grocery store products that have the pink vs the number that have blue, the number of walks/runs/rides for the pink vs the blue....... you get the idea.

Wouldn't it be kind of inconvenient to have a pair of pants hanging from your lapel?

He could pull off the look a little better if he weren't a fat slob with bleached hair.

John's prior comments about the Loudmouth pants pretty much say it all. Something to the effect of: they're so bright, he can find them and put 'em on in an unlit room.

So either:

a - you're a proctologist and Daley's your patient, or
b - you hooked up with him and found him to be less than snug, or
c- John Daley is a big jerk.

Should also make the magnets for peoples cars. And make the NFL put a little sticker on the back of everyone's helmet. And advertise relentlessly. And then shut everything down abruptly due to a financial scandal.

Got my first UFIA a few years ago. Thankfully my doc is at least female. The experience was polar opposite from what I've seen in porn.

what, did someone put belt loops and a fly on Joey Buttafuoco weight lifter pants? the goofy print elastic waist band pants were fun and easy to find before Joey came along. not long afterward the pants started hiding in embarrassment.

Can't they use an MRI for this?
 
2012-08-11 12:00:46 PM  
CSB time/

I was driving I-40 westbound on some holiday weekend maybe 2 years ago, and near the Arkansas/Oklahoma border, John Daly passes me doing about 100 in a Maybach.

He drives about like you'd expect. He waits not at all for traffic to clear in the left lane - he just passes on the right and keeps going.

I followed him until I had to get gas. I was using him as my rabbit. I couldn't have kept up with him in my Jeep (Cherokees aren't stable past 90 mph), but traffic was thick enough that I could keep up. There were probably 5 cars rabbiting him.

I only figured out who it was after the fact, based on his license plate, and then google-fu which confirmed he does have a Maybach.

AllUpInYa: Can't they use an MRI for this?


Not for screening.

Doc is feeling for size of prostrate and texture.

A blood test is also done, to check the levels of PSA (prostrate specific antigen). Since prostrate cancer is very slow growing, and unlikely to metastasize, PSA levels have fallen out of favor for diagnosis of prostrate cancer. Link

I agree. Also female. I guess we both get bad karma now.

Average age of men when diagnosed with prostrate cancer: 70

Average age of women when diagnosed with breast cancer: 61

I thought the gap would be greater, but 7% of breast cancer diagnosis are in women under the age of 40. As we all know, younger women have firmer breasts, and that makes diagnosis more difficult. So younger women tend to have more advanced cancer.

I don't wear the ribbons, but the blue products don't sell because men tend not to buy that kind of shiat.

Allen. The end.: So he's fighting cancer while smoking a cigarette?


Yeah cuz him smoking totally negates any money/awareness he might raise.

Sounds legit. Bet you're a saint.

His pants are exceedingly colorful, but I have noticed that in every picture of him wearing them he is wearing a solid top, in a contrasting color.
Call him a drunken buffoon if you want to, but fat boy has such good fashion sense he might could be gay.

You might try some reading comprehension. The original post noted deaths were approximately equal (i didn't bother to verify the data) and your comeback had to do with the average age of diagnosis (again not verified.)
Also he/she makes a valid point about the discrepancy in our culture as to how much emphasis is placed on a predominately women's issue versus an exclusively men's issue.

Or both?


If you really fear the exam go find a female doctor with the smallest hands possible.

I just went through this rigmarole and I'll tell you there's more to it than that. When the PSA test comes in high, a follow-up test called the free PSA (fPSA) is done to distinguish a high PSA that might indicate cancer. A low percentage of fPSA is correlated with greater cancer risk.

In my case my fPSA level was about 10% which when taken with my total (6.3, about 3x normal for my age) gave me about a 1-in-2 chance of having cancer. That, combined with some enlargement detected by DRE and my dad having had it... biopsy time.

Happy to say, the punches (all 12 of them) came in benign. Welcome to middle age, guys.

I will also tell you that PSA levels can fluctuate for a lot of reasons - infection, exercise, injury, having sex. In hindsight (so to speak) I probably should have waited longer and had more of the tests done to find out what my true baseline normal is. But at least I know now.

He could just get a prostate exam befor every shot.
