Would You Choose It?

All you straight guys who get a bit queasy when thinking about the need for a prostate exam will be quite happy to know a new un-intrusive test may be available soon. All you need to do is pee in a cup...which we all know is easy enough.
Researchers in England say the new test shows great promise. According to the initial clinical trial showed great promise.

"The pilot group involved 155 men in urology clinics. Of this group, 58 had prostate cancer, 24 had bladder cancer, and 73 had urological problems without cancer.
The researchers used a gas chromatography (GC) sensor system called Odoreader that is able to identify different patterns of volatile compounds in the urine.“The results of the pilot study presented here indicate that the GC system is able to successfully identify patterns that allow classification of urine samples from patients with urological cancers,” the study authors wrote.
Klein explained that cancers produce distinct chemicals because of their specific biochemistry. These can be picked up under the right circumstances.
“If you use the right technology, you can detect these abnormal chemicals,” he said."
I think most of us, if given the choice, would much rather piss into a cup.
The best news is, according to the findings, this test should provide faster, and more accurate results of early-stage prostate cancers resulting in far fewer intrusive biopsies.

Until the clinical trials are complete, and until the FDA approves the methods, we'll still have to rely on the old standby's: PSA blood work (rapidly falling out of favor),
and the old Digital Rectal Exam (DRE). And, as those of us who've been through them more than once, not all DREs are created equal. Some doctors are good at it

 And some are not. 

And, guys... Please remember that popping a boner during a prostate exam can happen.
If not a full hard-on,

it's very typical to experience at least a little bit of penile engorgement, a semi-, as the finger(s) prevent the flow of blood out of the penis.

Yes, it is even possible to leak a bit of pre-cum. Your doctor knows this, your doctor expects this. There is no reason to be embarrassed.
If the option were available, would you choose it?

I think I would choose it. Everytime I've been to the doctors and the fingers go up, I get hard, and then he checks out my cock, and he always assures me its better to check for things hard. If he only knew I got hard from him being hot!

I obey my doctor (who is paid to choose for me).
I undergo one APS a year (and no digital rectal exam) for more than fifteen years and (fortunately) the result is the same as if I had underwent none of them. Yes, but at the moment, thus I am not saying that it is quite useless.
It is about a simple blood test (without necessity of being on an empty stomach) by checking the rate of the prostatic specific antigen which must be lower than four nanogram per milliliter.
Although there are cancers with normal PSA as well as with moderate rises of the PSA without associated cancer.
Obviously, all which facilitates the diagnostic or makes it be more reliable is good to take.
Love, hugs and bisous, Jean and Pat.

Yes! Certainly! Some very nice cocks there, both up and down! Thanks for your visits and comments! Numbers down again at present! Interesting spread of countries though! Trust you had a restful weekend! How is Paul's book selling? Well, I hope!

Wow, there's big, bigger and even bigger! Yes French Patrick, this year is going to fly by! Hugs and bisous.

Whatever is accurate and get a 2nd opinion. Pissing in the cup will require a little bit of education to the male when it comes to identifying patterns with their piss colour. When it comes to education of the genitals we all know how that is going to play out. Until someone dies from it the majority will do absolutely nothing.

In a perfect world everyone would know how to check for irregular patterns when it comes to what comes out the other end. Piss, poo and cum; if it dont look right or you cant link it to something you have done then go to the doctor.

Early detection is what it is all about now.

@ mistress - I think your doctor may be right, because he can more easily detect smaller lumps or deformities, should they be present.

@ Patrick - the new book appears to be selling better than Book 1, and that is a welcome statistic. You should read them. Being a "retired" man of the cloth, you may find them interesting. Hugs!!!
