    Any interesting first prostate exam stories?

    I was only 18 when I first had one. My dad had taken me to his doctor for my pre-college physical exam and the doctor gave me the works, including an unexpected prostate exam. It would be some years later until I got my 2nd prostate exam, after which they became a regular part of my physicals.

    That's odd that they checked your prostate at that age....I thought the protocol was to start checking that at when older, like about 40? But to answer your question...I thik I was around 22 the first time...had some pain there due to a small anal fissure. Was kind weird as I was really not into anal exploration at that point and not yet in a healthy relationship with my asshole.

    I don't know why the doctor did a prostate exam at 18, I sure was not expecting it. Maybe he got off doing it, I don't know. But what they say about 40 (I have even heard 50) is just not followed by all doctors. I have known other guys who got their first prostate exam at their college physical. And I know plenty of guys that have had prostate exams in their 20s and 30s. It seems totally random.

    I had my first at 25. I was a new patient, but hadn't expected that at all. Always thought it was odd, so young, but can see a Dr. would want to have a baseline of the new patient. Next one was in my late 40's, again with a new Dr. - but now it's routine.

    As mentioned above, my first was at 18, also a surprise. The next one after that, same doctor, was at 24, and then at every physical exam after that. So much for the theory of prostate exams are for older men!

    I have a friend who is 22 yrs old. He never suspected that anything was wrong. He had a check up and the doctor checked his prostate. He was surprised at that. the doc explained that since he was active in both hockey and football he should be checked. The doctor found two lumps. He was tested and he had early stage prostate cancer. They caught it in time. He is now cancer free.
    Just one instance where it isn't the norm that you don't need to be older to get it.

    I am glad that your friend's cancer was caught very early.

    Since I had a very early prostate exam, too, I have wondered why doctors don't usually start them earlier. I have heard about a guy in his early 30s having prostate cancer, so apparently it is possible for young men to have prostate cancer. A friend of mine, while not having cancer, had a very bad prostate infection, and he is only in his early 30s.

    For the cost of a glove, a glob of lube, and 10 seconds during a physical exam, it seems that prostate exams should be part of a routine physical even for young men.

    I am curious as to what does playing hockey and football have to do with getting a prostate exam?

    I had my first prostrate exam when I turned 30. It had nothing to with age, but was caused by me telling my pcp that my older brother had been diagnosed with prostrate cancer. I wasn’t expecting the exam and since I was just at the dr. for a 6 mo check up, I had not worn underwear. I had no idea that I would be dropping trou that day! I was glad that I had taken a shower that morning. Besides remembering that the dr seemed a bit uncomfortable as he instructed me to assume the navy position ( he had been in the navy and it was his attempt at humor ), the only other things I remember was he used way too much lube and made a mess and he kept saying “ pressure, pressure, pressure” as his finger went in. I was ready to laugh since I had many dicks bigger than his finger in there.

    First one was at 40. Nothing special, I was afraid I might get hard, but nah...it didn’t happen. Office was cold..

    I thought about getting a vasectomy about four years ago so I went and had a check up and when I pulled my pants Down the dr began to inspect my Dick, gently lifting it up checking my balls, etc and I started to get a chub, and he gave my balls a quick, hard tug (yipe!) and immediately I went soft. :laughing:

    Though I thought that was a bit weird.

    Damn, that is very weird. I have had my share of erections during physicals and my doctors have just ignored it. Tugging on your balls hurt, didn't it ?

    Yep. I was taken aback a bit actually, and I kinda wanted to punch him in the face, but no....
    I just never went back, so I’m still intact.

    Had my first prostate exam in early 30's. That's how I found out I was allergic to latex. Ended up with to prescriptions from that experience.

    My first prostate exam was when I was in my early 20s while in the military. I was getting prepped for hernia surgery and they actually did a FULL physical on me beforehand. I was a bit surprised, but it was quick and professional. I have not had one since.
