    For fortnight, my left ball often hurts without specific reasons, yesterday I went to see my family doctor. After P/E, he gave me a slip for transrectal ultrasonographic exam for the prostate. So I had an appoinment for it on Wednesday.
    I'd like to know what it is. Is there anyone who can give me the information about it? Thanks.

    You lie on your side and bend your legs, the thing is not as broad as an average cock (may be no bigger than a thick ballpoint pen), they'll put KY on it. What can make it hurt is that they may not give you time to relax. You may have to put all your attention on that 1% gay of yours.

    Whatever, it won't hurt as much as a transrectal prostate biopsy. That is the same, but with 11 piercings of your prostate while it's in there....

    Thanks buddies,

    I have a question.
    I am still in 20s so I can't understand why the doctor has suspected my prostate.
    I always believe that prostatic problems are just matters for elderly. No?
    And should I take off all pants and briefs for it?

    Not at all. It's rare, but certainly occurs. At least you're not having a cytoscopy. That's a whole hell of a lot more painful.

    Though more common the older you get, prostate problems are also found in the relatively young.

    Read the description more closely. You'll probably be nude at least below your waist. (I've been nude, with gown added, for every MRI or ultrasound I've had, regardless of the area they're looking at.)

    Good luck!

    I had a whole bout of recurring prostatitis while in my 20s. I went in twice, took piles of antibiotics and had my prostate milked (extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing). My doc told me to eat a lot of tomatoes and ejaculate more. That worked.

    You know we are obliged to ask which worked better to relieve your problem - lots of tomatoes or lots of ejaculation? :biggrin1:

    Just now, I've finiished the exam and backed to the room. I think it was nonsense that I had to take off all my clothes, even a ring on the finger for just the prostate and ball sac exam. Though my crotch was covered with a piece of towel, I was awefully embarrased while a guy was checking my balls and putting a stick into my ass in the dim light. Anyway I hope good result.

    No need for embarrassment. They do this all day. Maybe it is BS, maybe not, but either way I hope you get a good result back.
