989 - In which Lily proposes being serviced

Postby maarvarq » Thu Mar 16, 2017 6:22 am

I have a yearly skin cancer check, and presumably my doctor would send me for extra tests if something looked amiss. Said doctor was reluctant to refer me for another prostate cancer test, because the current state of testing for that past the initial blood test is maybe damned if you do and maybe damned if you don't. Not getting tested leading to undetected aggressive cancer would be bad, but a non-aggressive one (and the initial test can't tell the difference) might very well not get you before old age does, and the follow-up test can have pretty nasty consequences if it goes wrong. Fortunately said initial test was negative.
