On a serious note though guys, when you have your physical, have Dr. Big Knuckle to give you an ULTRA SOUND along with your check-up.
Why? I had one for the first time when I turned 40, and cancer was detected. Luckily, after surgery on Jan. 3 of 07, and radiation, I am cancer free and stronger than I was in college.
Ironically, I told a 56yr. old friend of mine this very same thing in March. It seemed that he listened, but never did get the ultra sound. In August he saw a Dr. due to back pain he was having. After the examination it was determined that his body was full of cancer. He died about 3 weeks later.
Sorry to thread jack aphilla, but since you brought up the health screening, I thought I'd mentioned it in passing.
Same story, went for a check up last year and doc suggested a high def cardiac scan and calcium score and when I went back he told me my heart was perfect, my calcium score was 2, my cholesterol was 149 so no chance of a heart attack (the wine accounts for this healthy state, that's my story and I'm sticking to it....), but the lymphoma they found was something to worry about! Again luckily early stage, so treatment was fairly manageable and 1 year on, clear and good to go...
Don't skip the physicals, guys, it's not all fun, but man, it sure beats the consequences of finding out too late that you have something nasty
