Ya Think?

If penis cancer is as common as breast cancer is, what do you think would be a good idea.

How funny do you think it would be?

I think I've been reading the wrong blog.

Larry, from the perspective of my own family medical history, there is nothing funny about breast cancer.

There IS something funny about uncomfortable diagnostic procedures seeming to be concentrated on one gender, however. Not ha-ha funny, but odd funny, don't you think? Even the old "doc's finger" test for an enlarged prostate gland has been overtaken by a blood-based PSA test, no finger required. Meanwhile my wife still gets the standard mammogram-mechanical-squashing screening for breast lumps.

Nonetheless, thank you for stopping by and for leaving a comment. You are always welcome here.
