Could I request that my doctor may not go into my anus for any reason? ?
I'm older now and ĺ do not want to have a prostate exam done through my anus.

there is no other way to get it checked. sounds like you have latent homosexual tendencies if that bothers you so much

I don't mind my doctor doing a proctological exam - I just wish he wouldn't put both hands on my shoulders...

Sure, but colorectal exams usually aren't done until you are middle age anyway.
These are standard exams and don't make you "gay" in any way.

Yes, it is your body, and you decide, not the doctor. I do not allow mine to do it.

Stop complaining. It's just something that we have to deal with as males. Same as having to drop your pants and underwear to get checked for a hernia with "everything showing". I've only had a prostate check once in my life - and so far, that has been enough for me. I'm pretty sure I won't die of prostate cancer. I agree with you that it sucks...the physical feeling I had didn't go away for awhile...but it's about the best way to get your prostate checked. You think your doc likes doing it??? It's just part of being male the same way women have to deal with breast examinations and gynecologists who "see everything" and get to know them better than their husbands. Sometimes the human body can be a pretty damn gross thing. But these things can be done quickly and with as little discomfort as possible. You don't want it? Tell the doc. If you aren't 40 or older and have no family history of cancer you probably don't need one right now.Source(s): the obvious

I have heard of a blood test u can get. So many men get prostate cancer.

You sound like a little girl who wouldn't have a prostate gland anyway. An actual man wouldn't whine about something that easy. It takes about 15 seconds and it's not fun but it's OK. But just tell the doc that you don't want that done. The doc may or may not want to keep you as a patient if you refuse appropriate testing.Source(s): (Do you think there's something special about your butt?)

If you don't want an "old school" Prostrate exam you don't have to have one, just tell the doc you don't want it.
Ask him for the blood test instead, it's less reliable... but still better than dying of Prostrate Cancer.

Yes. You tell the doctor you do not consent to a rectal/prostate exam.
