Is there any other way to check a person's prostate besides the old digital (Finger up the wazoo)? ?

It seems that if doctors, (urologists, primary care, gastroenterologists, oncologists, proctologists, etc etc) find out that you have been treated for prostate cancer, they want you to bend over and submit. They also get about $100 per inch that they indulge up your posterior. Is there another way with dignity? Even more, l is it really necessary these days or is it just a quick two or three hundred bucks? Preservation of dignity.

    The PSA blood test is the other way.

    Yes, blood tests, ultrasound scans, biopsies. But, never, ever, get tests done unless you do have other symptoms. Doctors are mainly interested in your money. They will do all sorts of damaging things to you to get it.

    done along with the blood PSA test

    There is a blood test available, but it isn't as accurate as the old "Finger up the wazoo".

    Have the blood test done, if it comes back positive... it would be in your best interest to have your wazoo fingered, just to be sure.

    You don't want to die a horrible death just to avoid a few seconds of discomfort... do you?

    They could use some variation of a 'Cytoscope' which is a small tube with a camera and lights - but honestly, if you have been treated for prostate cancer before, what's a finger up your butt in comparison to getting a clean bill of health?

    Our Doctors in the U.K. don't charge for  this examination, so it's nothing to do with money, it is safer than X-rays. My friend had the test and it turned out to be cancer.
