    Re: Coffee and prostate cancer...

    Actually... your right women dont have a specific "prostate" like men, BUT some high and mighty medical people did change the name/rename the "skene glands" to the female prostate...* *:-?

    So maybe the extra coffee will help them too????* *:o

    ("mens prostate" ;) and yes I just quoted from there report)

    Re: Coffee and prostate cancer...

    Personally, Id prefer to remain without a prostate, thank you very much...it would be just one extra thing wed have to have examined once a year... >:(

    If we do, though, I should be okay with the amount of coffee I drink!

    Cheers

    Or you could simply adopt the normal male behaviour and not bother getting it checked.

    Well while you were up -make it worth while - Drink some coffee.

    By the way it is a good idea if you are over fifty and male get it checked even though it is a little uncomfortable. :o

    That could be a vicious circle seeing coffee is a diuretic :(

    What worse a pap smear or the evil finger? :-[

    perhaps this depends on the talent and care of the person doing it

    I suppose at least the guys get to start their routine later in life.

    I must find a doctor with small hands and skinny fingers.

    I believe these days a blood test can reveal things sooner than the old fashioned method.

    A hand, a freezing cold metal instrument and a scraper....from the age of around 18 until around 60 years old at least every other year.

    And then, from about 50 onwards (yes, there is about a 10 year crossover, just because we love being tortured so much), we get to go and stick our upper body in a vice and get it squeezed into pancake thinness, sideways.

    And we wont even mention childbirth... :D

    I think we win in the long term discomfort stakes! ;D

    Bloody hell, Im surprised Im just a caffeine addict, and not an alcoholic! ;)

    Not sure that its really a win, sounds more like losing to me. :-/

    Anyroad, I figure a little discomfort is worth it to potentially avoid a lot more later in life.

    Re: Coffee and prostate cancer...

    Just educamacating you all, is what Ima doing.... ;) Its what we women do as soon as any man dares mention they may have it worse than us...I would be absolutely kicked out of the Club if I didnt shoot you all down in flames.

    ;D ;D ;D

    And definitely it is worth it - be ye man or woman (says someone whos Father in Law died 18 months ago from an 8 year battle with Prostate Cancer, so is very definitely in favour of prevention.)

    I never agrue with a woman on that subject (maybe that is why I have been married for 35+years to the same woman).

    Prevention is certainly better than the cure in all cases. I do hope coffee is a preventative not a causitive factor. :-/

    I think the reason women have so manyh discomforts is to make up for the discomfort of men having to put up with women!! Jokes. My girlfriend is fairly high maintenance, so every problem she has is shrugged off as "Thats karma getting ya!"

    Hope coffee really does help prostate cancer though, I drink enough coffee im sure ill be very safe!

    Re: Coffee and prostate cancer...

    the pap smear isnt too bad - its not painful just a little uncomfortable - very happy to get it done every 2 years knowing that cancer of the lady parts could be the alternative - and that would be REALLY uncomfortable not to mention possibly fatal.. Im sure if I was a guy I would be ok about the prostate check too for the same reason.
