I still flinch thinking about the cystoscopy exam inside my bladder. The nurse said they used to use a rigid stainless tube instead of the flexible 'snake' and men really didn't like that device.

Kim Garretson's monthly poster is featured daily on our homepage and at www.pcaw.org (Prostate Cancer Awareness Week). His book, Niches of Clarity at Gunflint, is a sardonic view of the infuriatingly awful healthcare practices and lazy cavalier behavior by men that together give us today's prostate cancer epidemic.

"Instead of adding to the Web's voluminous text resources, I chose to modernize pulp fiction magazine covers from the 30's to the 60's. (See www.MansGland.com ) Why? Because I believe smiling at the absurdity of the disease is one of many coping and healing paths to follow," she says.

"My Requests: Women viewers: Please lead healthy men by the ear to this page and make them look. Healthy Men: Glance, grimace, get a PSA. Men with Prostate Cancer: Hey, try laughing in the face of dread. It helps." Kim can be reached at E-Mail.
