After the latest GSP debacle, I agree with you.

If you insist.

No one seems to have noticed so far that this is for a blood test, the PSA.

They don't draw the blood from the anus, prostate gland, or anywhere near there.

It's a pretty bad test, from what I've heard.

I'd stick with the rectal exam, but I'm not sure if it would make me feel like having a sammich.

/Maybe chocolate-covered strawberries

Wouldn't the antigen be in the blood as it circulates throughout the body?

I don't know much about these tests myself, but you can't spell "analysis" without "anal."

Yeah, that's what I meant . . . there's no bending over involved as the jokes and pictures suggested.

What I meant by bad test was that the risks (treating people who don't need to be treated) don't outweigh the benefits.

Get your asses checked guys, it's important.

Prostate problems kill.  So what if the standard diagnostic technique goes in through the poop chute? This isn't funny.

Okay, maybe it's a little funny.

Anyhoo, I used to have a phobia about anything going into my ass.  I suspect it was from when I went to the emergency room as a 10 year old kid:  something was wrong with me and I had a super high fever -- and some doctor must've ordered that all temperatures were to be taken rectally (even though there were plenty of non-rectal methods).  At the time, I couldn't understand why my mom (who was in the room with me the whole time) didn't stop these strange people from repeatedly sticking objects in my pooper.  Seriously, it seemed like every few minutes somebody would come in to stick a mercury-filled glass tube up my ass.

So, when, as an adult, my doctor wanted a prostate exam, I was expecting the worst.  But, it honestly wasn't a big deal.  Took about 30 seconds.  It wasn't even really that unpleasant.  I mean, it felt a little weird, but it didn't hurt.

I don't expect another prostate exam until I'm in my 40s. But now that I've gone through it, I know there's nothing to get exercised about.

I honest to God fear that I will fart on a doctor giving me a prostrate exam one day.

It will be from 5:30-8:30 p.m. in the main conference rooms at Community Hospital, 23625 Holman Highway, Monterey.

I was about to say that "OK, so they talk about the football and then the event is over before the game starts", and then I remembered it is in CA.

/wouldn't mind most national sports events never going much past 9pm, and even your local games ending usually by 10pm.

Football is more of a girls thing now.

Every woman i know watches football... but i only know one or two guys who follow it.

The PSA is only an indicator and is most effective if tracked over time for changes.  I doubt any respectable doctor would go from high PSA to prostatectomy without a few intermediate steps.

Yeah, I'm the football fan in my house. Hubby has never liked the sport, or any sport except for Formula 1. He spends the time heckling the game. He used to make up hysterical interpretations of the ref signals, but now he just repeats the most sexually suggestive announcer comments to make it clear how homosexual the game is:  "He's going deep for his tight end" and stuff like that.

Here's my usual rant:  I was diagnosed with advanced, aggressive prostate cancer 6.5 years ago.  It had already spread to my bones and is therefore incurable.  I am undergoing chemo right now and doing well, but I will eventually die from prostate cancer.

Lots of people make the point that PSA tests aren't 100% accurate and that they may lead to false positives.  The government will tell you that those false positives and the resulting tests and/or treatments make PSA tests uneconomical, sometimes even dangerous.

Statistically speaking, they're probably right.  But is it worth the personal risk to put off regular PSA tests yourself?  If you are that guy who finds out too late, you'll realize you risked your life - and lost.  You will not survive metastasized prostate cancer.

Don't rely on the government.  Ask your family doctor/urologist.  They will most likely urge you to have the simple blood test - and at $65 retail, it's not because they're getting rich off it.

Only if the clinician looks like this and promises a happy ending.
