It's one of those necessities, like paying taxes ...

Men don't have anything comparable. Some men complain about the prostate exams, but realistically women have to go through worse.

Actually, men are stupid, stubborn and ignorant in this department. Women accept and value the importance of the mommogram, men get this "el macho" attitude that only sissy boys get poorly snakes.

Well get real guys. My dad got prostate cancer, not a pleasant experience. So get a good feel and keep the snake in hissing good order.

Technology appears to be moving forward...

I saw a programme on Discovery Health channel this morning which addressed the problem of damaging nerves in the process of removing prostate cancer. It seems they can now take a nerve from the leg to repair the activity (shall we say) of the associated member. Apparently it takes a few months to settle in, but about 85% of former performance can be expected.

I don't know how widely this replacement-nerve technique is available, but clearly it would be worth asking about, and as you say, the sooner these things are detected, the better chance of successful repair.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
