Interesting stuff from my doctor.

The only test for prostate problems (as far as I know) is a PSA and the "expert professors" a band of long coats and long beards is recommending doing away with it. I also just read an article that the digit up the dingus is being done away with (that one I agree with).

The same band of "experts" is also hinting at doing away mammary grams until the woman hits 50.


Nothing to eat or drink since 6PM yesterday and I am on my second coffee pot and third cigar.

    The mammograms bit I read about some time back. Britain did a study of I forget how many tens of thousands of women who got their beautiful bits squished versus those who did not; and they concluded there was considerable more danger from the unnecessary procedures generated by false positives and muddy results than there was just by letting those poor bubbies alone. This is the first I have heard of similar prostate advice.

    There's also the biopsy, but I don't think you'll be much happier.
