That headline brought a tear to my eye

Now I really have no reason to get a checkup.

2 weeks of opiates with no stool softener and my doctor did a prostate exam.

Thanks, doc.

Now, I don't want to point fingers on who is celebrating, but....

Yes! I knew if I put off going to the doctor long enough something like this would happen.

Take THAT, people who think men should get check ups more than once every 20 years!

Hey Doc, you mind using two fingers? I'd like a second opinion...

I suspect the GOP will try to block the sale of this product "for the good of the people". Count on Rush to chime in.

Nabb1: THIS.

I'm going to be *that guy* and let you know that this is just a replacement for a blood test that's more accurate. It doesn't say anything about it replacing... manual exams.

I went through a prostate biopsy last summer as a result of a significant increase in my PSA number.   False alarm (something the PSA test is known for...). My biopsy was 100% clean but the scare and the actual procedure made for a very uncomfortable few weeks, i can tell you.

This new test sounds like a huge improvement.  Bring it on!

Let me know when they can check for colon cancer without using a 6-foot hose.

I had to start at 35 for similar reasons (43 now). I'll be glad if this examination is eliminated, but there is much more of a freak-out over it than it deserves.

Awkward, uncomfortable, embarrassing? Yes.
Takes 5 seconds, and my Dr. is professional about it? Yes.

Those of you who dread your first: get over it. The problems it prevents are much worse.

Since colon polyps run in my family, I've been scoped out before. It was fine, the nurse injected the sedative and I woke up groggy two hours later. No fuss no muss. My father says I'm lucky, back in the early 70s his butt doctor would say it was time to get the funnel and the hammer when he went in for a look-see.

I am thirty and had my first one two months ago. Its not a big deal. Uncomfortable? Yeah. But it can save your life. That said, I am not in a rush to get the next one done.

the article mentions this urine test replacing a blood test, can anyone clarify if this changes anything in terms of anal probes? - concerned citizen
