I was thinking about this when reading another post about a 16 y.o. kid wondering if he should worry about some goosebump like bumps on his dick. Told him no prob, but if he’s still worried, ask the doctor the next time he’s there for something else.
Which brings me to my poll. If you’ve got a health concern that involves your genitals (also, breasts if female, prostate if male), do you mind an opposite sex doctor? A couple of months ago I found a small lump on my scrotum (not in my testicles) that kept me walking the floor all night until I could get an appointment at my HMO. To get a fast appointment, I settled for what I could get, a female doctor. No problem, I’m not modest anyway…besides, I had way more on my mind (I’m not kidding about walking the floor all night). She looks at it, fusses with it a little, then says, “it’s just a cyst. Leave it alone (now she tells me…been fussing with it all night), it’ll go away on its own. We could operate, but it’ll probably just reoccur. If it gets infected, come back…then, we have to operate.” Whew. No cancer of the manly bits for this guy!
I stop sweating bullets, struggle mightily to avoid hugging the doctor, thank her embarrassingly profusely, and leave. Yup, it goes away on its own, blah, blah, blah.
What say you? If you have a private parts issue, do you give a damn about an opposite sex doctor?
