I was reading the medical articles in the latest Newsweek (21JAN08 Date) and saw one stated that abnormal PSA levels are wrong more than right. ???!!!!
In another article it reported the guidelines for PSA tests are to perhaps begin at the earliest at age 50 but that even this was "controversial" with "half" the physicians reporting deeming PSA testing of questionable benefit. ???!!!
One article also implies that incontinence and E.D. are permanent with any treatment. ???!!!
ARE THESE PEOPLE CRAZY?!
I'm sure these articles on medical testing have the backing of (adjectives deleted) major medical insurance company and Medicare actuaries and financiers. It saddens me to think anyone reading this stuff might be influenced to pass up a chance to stop metestasized cancer.
My father, an actual cedar fence post chopper in the 1930s, at this point in a discussion would comment something like,
"....Some don't have sense to pour piss out of a boot with the directions written on the heel...."
