 Compared to traditional treatments that may leave you incontinent or with ED, this looks like an improvement.

Let's go sci-fi for a moment.  Imagine you're a basic AI but you have some decent hardware with room to grow.  With experience, you become more and more complex until you cross a threshold and gain sentience.

Then you realize your the entire purpose of your existence is to dive into rectums and examine biological shiat tubes for defects.  And because you're a machine, you don't even get to take a break - when you're not being shoved up someone's ass, they turn you off.

What if being shoved up the ass turns you on?

That's actually a very good point - generally speaking, you don't want to program your AI because the result is a strict flowchart, an 'expert system'.  You want to give it a reward/punishment system and then let it figure out from experience how to maximize the ratio for 'reward'.  In this case, it would enjoy rectums because they're the path to where cancer might be, and finding cancer?  That's nirvana.

So yes, you'd expect an AI like this to be very enthusiastic about diving into your bottom.  Uncomfortably so.  As in, "for God's sake don't give the thing a voice interface that a patient might hear".

The problem with that is that the A.I. may decide to 'detect cancer' when there is none because it gets rewarded for finding it....

v1, sure.  Then the AI designers smarten up and add a negative value to false positives.

...then in v3 they start trying to address the problem with the AI having frequent bouts of indecision and resulting nervous breakdowns.

Whatever, I shipped a box of poo to Wisconsin.  @ work we're also dealing with disposal of fluorescent bulbs/lamps and we ship those to Wisconsin also.

I'm pretty sure Wisconsin is capable of dealing with everything.

This sounds like a good idea, but there are 10,000 good ideas in treating prostate cancer that have turned out not to work. Let's see a clinical trial before shoving lasers into our nether parts.

Fortunately, the clinical trial I'm in doesn't do that.  My indignities are much less invasive.

Whatever improves things. Prostate cancer runs heavily on my dad's side, in fact he died of it (supposedly a 1%er). My brother has been flagged but is declining any treatment right now, and monitoring. Dad had to perform difficult and painful feats just to pee. I can't ever handle that, I pee 10 times a day as I like liquids and take a prescribed diuretic. I started getting the rubber glove test 20 years ago. Not my idea of a big Saturday night, but it was no big deal, lasts 20 sec.  Well my current doc says "yeah, we don't do that any more".  WTF.  Guess I should have him check PSA again.
