First the patient is asked to bend over and place the back of his triceps flat on exam table. With your legs spread apart, a doctor lubricates his gloved finger and reaches about three inches inside your anus to feel for your prostate. The test last about 10 seconds. 
As a patient, you should feel relieved that you took a clinical step towards possibly saving your life. Sure, it's comical when you think about the procedure, but there's nothing funny about the countless numbers of husband, fathers, brothers, etc. who avoid detection until it's too late.

Not sure if they let medical students do these exams, but some of the men might look forward to the young ladies that have blessed the profession of medicine to do their exam.

Maybe more men would have the exam done if there were more female doctors.

I mean who wants a guy doctor doing that to a man with any dignity at all......

They'll think it's a sissy thang, or even worse most of BM will feel finger-raped. Nah, this is a 'cracka check'.

Many black men reach the stage of advanced prostate cancer that eventually spreads to other organs. Once this happens, death will likely follow.
Prostate exams aren't sexy. There are men who have the warning signs of enlarged prostates through erectile dysfunction. The enlarged prostate does not mean you have cancer, but failing to treat it could lead to cancer.
Too many men are taking meds like Viagra once they notice what could be prostate related problems. Some doctors write scrips without requiring PE or PSA.
There is nothing sexual about this exam. A urologist is trying to save your life. This is not the same as having your wife freak with you.
Again, AA men are dying of prostate cancer at a much higher rate because too many refuse to be screened for early detection.
