mens physical


i was wondering what your doctor does to you when you go in for a physical exam. mine has never been the same twice! always something different they do? what all do they do to you? is your doctor a male or female?

Re: mens physical

Hey bud, I'm 45 and have an annual physical. I suspect that docs do different exams at different ages, but your situation sounds somewhat different. I'll share with you what my doc does every year. I have a complete blood work up with all labs and a U/A. He checks lungs, heart, eyes, ears, throat and feels the tourso for anything that isn't supposed to be there. He checks penis, does a hernia check (turn head and cough) checks testicles for cancer and does a digital rectal exam to check the prostate. I started going everyear when I turned 40 and several years ago during my annual visit he discovered Diabetes Type II.... although that hasn't changed my annual physical...I now go every few months for follow-up checks on the blood sugar. I don't know your age, and don't need to know...but please take care of yourself and be healthy. If you believe that your doc should be doing more...ask him/her, you gotta be able to talk with your doc about anything, otherwise you may not get what you need from them. My doc is a male and I'm much more comfortable that way, I won't even see a Physician's Assistant if he isn't in for anything other than a routine illness. I'm not much into sharing all of me with anyone else, other than my wife of course! LOL
