yes we should do this, I can say I used to do it a lot, then stopped.

The reason for that was that I used to do it at bathtime which is the best time to do it, so they say, but I haven't had a bath for ten years.

:)I now take showers

good advice

hope you are OK

Hello Marc

You are indeed right that this is an important topic

I myself have a lump on the right side - have been fighting with myself about going to get it checked out (I have Lipomas all throughout my body and keep telling myself that it's just another one of them - but what if it's not?) - Just can't stand the thought of another man touching me down there again (last time a doc did it sent me on a really bad flashback trip) - Not sure of what to even say to the doc to begin with???

I can think of another member here, maybe two, who would very much agree with you that this is an important topic Marc. Thank you.
