How much do you know about Mom?

Dr. Grumpy: "Any major illnesses in your family?"

I can remember my mother (bargain hunter extraordinaire) getting very upset when I wouldn't take her for a free prostate exam. I reminded hee that she didn't have a prostate for them to examine. Her response? "But it's FREE!"

I died of that. It is possible - science has no boundaries.

So, do you manage to keep a straight face when your patients come out with things like this?

This was after her gender reassignment surgery - she used to be my Dad.

(Only explanation I have for a Mom with a prostate)

I suppose it's possible. I read about a guy that died of uterine cancer. He had received an organ transplant from an improperly screened donor with metastatic uterine cancer.

Many stallions have a uterus! Really, it's called the uterus masculinus. On the other hand, stallions do not have nipples.

And that, folks, is your Comparative Anatomy lesson for today.
