What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.

some of my colleauges say they have to wear a gown and dr checks them from head to toe and it can last an hour.

You may want to google- male exam. There are video clips that will give you a view of what to expect. Also web md explains the test that are important for all men. Request your doctor does each of these.

many doctors will begin doing a DRE (rectal exam) because of you age. Many guys don't like them, but I actually enjoy it!

This exam should be as commom as a blood and urine test, I have annuals and so far have only had a PSA, I questioned my Dr. as well because there is a family history of prostate cancer and he is well aware and has not done this. I think I need to get a second opinion.
