I had one. Just routine but worth it. I understand most men find the idea of medics poking around our private areas unpleasant. Completely normal reaction. But, it could save your life which is a pretty serious matter. I have seen people I know die early and quickly from illness that may have been caught earlier. One went in a month! Not nice.

Just for the record, I was offered a scan recently in case of an Arterial Anurisum (Just below the heart). In the UK its free and offered to all men who hit 65. Its a scan and gel, just like a baby scan. My wife made me promise not to ask if its a boy, saying everyone will make that joke. So I asked the nurse if it would leave a scar?

Point is, if offered take it. Painless, easy and quick. Apparently one in seventy have a problem, which mostly just need monitering or is easy to fix.
