THE ‘P’ WORD
(A user's guide to Prostate Problems)
First of all, friends...let me assure you that the title or context of this book is in no way intended to imply that prostate problems of even the most finite nature are a laughing matter. I can promise you that, after years of standing over a commode at 4:AM with zero to show for my efforts but lack of sleep, nothing could be further from the truth. On the other hand, searching out the elusive seeds of humor that inadvertently planted themselves along the way have proven to be of significant palliative value.
I have since undergone eight solid weeks of intensive Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer in an unselfish effort to become even more of an authority on the subject. I remained catheterized for three months in the interest of scientific research and, of course, to avoid the ultimate embarrassment of blowing up in public (which I believe is illegal in certain sections of the South)....
WHERE IS THE PROSTATE....AND WHAT’S IT DOING THERE ANYWAY?
Good question. The “where” part is going to require a road map. As you can see from the illustration on this page, the Prostate Gland is located directly below your bladder. Should this happen to vary, you will probably experience difficulties sooner than you might expect. The bladder, in turn, is located somewhere beneath your bellybutton...that would be on the inside, fellas, so don’t go searching for it.
