But Wojciechowski Draws the Line at Undergoing a Biopsy

Admirals VP to get prostate exam at Saturday's game. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 11/13/2014)

Having survived prostate cancer, I fully support Mike's efforts to  promote prostate cancer research and awareness.

However.....I recall that my prostate exams involved latex gloves and a tube of KY the privacy of my general practitioner's and urologist's offices.

Has the procedure has somehow changed, become less invasive?

Nope, as Dr. Oz demonstrates.

As for the biopsy, the experience ranks as the most humiliating medical procedure I have yet to experience, i.e., having been conscious while it was taking place.
