    Where do we stand on the prostrate thing these days? To paraphrase something Jerry said in some long-lost PATV episode, "There's a chance you have cancer, but you will 100% get diddled."

    I'm pressing 40, I supposed I have to warm up to the idea :bigfrown:

    I'd be more alongside the idea if there was a service where you could get things... really cleaned up first. You know, up there.

    I was brought up to make things look nice for visitors, even if they're here to do a job.

    No matter how many times I tell myself how much worse women have it, it doesn't make the idea any more appealing. And it's not like I'm embarrassed by them checking out my bare ass. I've had more colonoscopies than I can remember at this point due to having a (luckily mostly asymptomatic) case of IBD. And it's not because I'm like "eww, that's gay". Butt stuff is totally fine.

    It's just that going to a office where a relative stranger has a conversation with you and then casually fingers you in a businesslike manner... That's not something I can fit into my "this is fine" category.

    Getting a finger in the b-hole is a very small price to pay for early warnings about much worse things.

    It’s less invasive than the obgyn. If my wife can do that every year to screen for cancer, I can have a finger in the butt for a minute.

    And I had a cancer scare, that turned out to be a hemorrhoid cluster. So get in there doc make sure nothing is abnormal. Neither of us is going to be happy. But I’d rather be inconvenienced and a bit uncomfortable than dead.

    The AMA has said it's relatively ineffective compared to other early detection exams... But the alternative in this case is radiological screening on a similar schedule and that's much more expensive, not much better at detection, and is adding to your annual radiation exposure and potentially limiting other examination, so it's still the best protection available.

    It takes seconds and it's once a year and your doctor genuinely doesn't give a shit. When you are dealing with somebody and it's their job to deal with you, the interaction means way more to you than them. Doesn't matter if they're a cam girl, a social worker, a doctor, a waitress. It may be significant to you but they're unlikely to remember you at the end of the day. So get over the shame and/or pride and deal.

    I know there's definitely worse things than this, but I still feel like after getting a vasectomy I can endure pretty much anything.

    IIRC my friend said his laser vasectomy involved smoke rising from his nethers and the psychological terror that produced proved to him that he can get past any fear if he wants it bad enough

    Not to be comparing trauma but hearing about a laser vasectomy sort of feels like a Jedi getting his hand cut off all clean-like, compared to the Spanish Inquisition experience of watching a guy do it with a tray of knives.
