Poll for the old people

  1. Feb 8, 2008 #1
    I'm getting to that age where I have to get a prostate exam. would you rather have a member of the same sex but with big hands or a member of the opposite sex with little hands as a doctor?

    Six of one, half a dozen of the other. I don't care.

    Hmm...most people prefer just one doctor and one finger. :tongue:

    Trust me. Once you get the Cytoscope, nothing will ever again embarass you.

    Go to a man. It is as difficult for a woman to understand the sensations in a prostate as it is for a man to understand the discomfort of a mammogram. His largest finger will be smaller than a typical stool.

    If you're at that age, get a PSA and ask for the American Urology Association (think I got the name right) self-assessment questionnaire.

    Go for a female doctor with big hands. You only live once!
