The decision of the USPTF (or whatever the hell the letters of this little government group of nonclinical doctors who will decide who will get treatment for prostate cancer-it is not going to be good my friend) in saying that the government will not pay for a prostate cancer screening and PSA’s is a slap into the face of an organ than for years has served the male well, silently, alone, without demands, and aiding in support of sperm in the procreation of the very people who say it is unimportant.
The prostate has feelings too!
Louis Prima must have been talking about the prostate when he wailed…..”When the end comes I know, they’ll say just a gigolos….life goes on without me.”
