This may be the most important thing I've ever posted on this little ramshackle piece of the internets. Please forgive me if you already knew about this, but I, and a random sampling of women I know, did not!
After having two too many gin martinis with a brilliant and hilar cancer researcher that I work with, I spilled about my recent pussy scare. She asked me if my doctor examined the back of my cervix, by way of the rectal wall, during well woman exams/pap schmears.
The answer was a resounding, "NO! WTF! NO! No one ever has!" A middle aged colleague with 3 kids mirrored my sentiment. I felt so cheated! Duped! I didn't even know that was part of the exam! Knowledge is power. Turns out most cervical cancers start from the back. Also turns out that some doctors are either poorly trained or lazy.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD (AND YOUR CHEEKS)!
p.s. just out of curiosity, how many of you knew this?
