This is good advice. Given that I grew up in Africa I go annually to the deramtologist- I have so many blemishes even my spots have spots. The dermatologist often jokes "Holy Moley". Of course socialized medicine in Canada means there is no financial implication to me.

Other good advice is to have a colonoscopy- Dave Barry did a great piece on this.

@Antedelivian: Other good advice is to have a colonoscopy...

Yup -- I had my first one about 3 years ago -- the worst part was all the stuff you have to drink the night before t oclear your insides out. The next morning the doctor started off by commenting on that and saying "The worst is behind you" ... I was too weak to hit him LOL

@Max : Probably wise to say that in England all us old ones get a Poo sample test each year to screen for early bowel cancer. All done via the postal service.

And for men get the prostate tested, I am on a six monthly monitoring of two tiny tumours, the great probability is that I will die with the varmints not from them. But the six monthly blood test keeps an eye on their activity, giving plenty of time to decide on any futher actions to be taken, should they decide to get too active.

All good points --

I worked removing asbestos one summer in High School  I've also repaired brakes on cars as an after school job -- so a check of the lungs is also important for me -- This and having done Inkjet printer development where the oil based type inks can cause lung issues makes this doubly important -- Colon cancer screening is doubly important for many types of electronics work as well as the Colon is where some of these items are excreted -- to cut one's risk of colon cancer one should  take Magnesium in an absorbable form (Mixed Nuts are an excellent source of healthy absorbable minerals, and cholesterol fighting good fats for example)

Great advice -- nobody had better lay their hands on my nuts is all I can say!

@Max -- "Nobody should lay their hands on my Nuts"  -- Testicular cancer is another item that is important to screen for -- but the screening can be a bit painful if done by a female medical professional with long fingernails

In fact, it's right up there at the top of the list as one of my favorite organs.

That reminds me of the Allan Sherman song from many years ago. Humour seems to have aged as well.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
