I, Misogynist(ic wanker)

Try and understand this concept - false positives just cause worry and stress.

false negatives cause dead teens and women - including my ex partner who was effectively given a death sentence at 14 because the NHS flat out refused to test her for the cancer she actually had.

BUT THERE IS NO FSCKING WAY you can spin this criminally negligent incompetence as any form of positive outcome.

Even had I not lost a partner to cancer and had my own run in with it (a lot less serious thankfully) I'd happily beat your skull in with a claw hammer just for having the gall to write that comment.

You should be so very happy I'm not responsible for your upcoming prostate exam because it'd involve sandpaper and a dab of jalapeño, and that'd be the fun part of the experience!
