Answer I don't want to be sexist, in either direction, but I think that there is a difference. Females are more modest and more likely to have low self esteem, while males are more confident and more likely to have too much self-esteem, turning them into a show-off. Of course, this is just in gener…al. There are tons of exceptions. Heres my question: Are the reasons for this psychological or sociological? I'm sure part of this is caused by an evolutionary difference in the nature of men and women, but how much of this is just a social issue? Do men today just try to "act tough" so that they will be socially accepted, or do they do this for more instinctive reasons? Of course, it is a bit of both, but how much of each? I would be interested to hear what other people have to say. This could turn into an interesting debate. -DJ Craig Women and men have different self-esteem functions because they have different issues in life. OK, well, Women have different emotions and Women is more sensitive and emotional than Men which makes a women more vulnerable to critizism and putdowns, s instead of letting it go over their head, they take it in. And many low self esteem formed in an adults childhood, perhaps at school or highschool which is when boys are most nasty to girls. Hope this helped! . yes their is difference, plus the question pretty sexist because self esteem is different in everybody a gay dude could have lower self esteem than an ugly chick see you got g (MORE)
Mildly Bumpy, Symmetrical Breast . Yes it can be normal and I have what they call "cluster lumps" in both of my breasts which are also common in women. However when I discovered these little bumps (cysts) I went to my doctor to let him do a more thorough exam and then I go for my mammogram every …year just to be sure everything is A-OK.. (MORE)
Answer . becuase you know your body the best and can check yourself daily and notice any changes before anyone else
The Importance of Breast Examinations . Breast examination is a way in which early changes can be detected, as survival chances are excellent if cancers are detected early. Self-examination should be done monthly, just after a period. If you would like to learn how to do this, see the Web Link …to the left. This should not replace examination by a doctor, which should be done yearly for women over 40, and three-yearly before this. These checks may need to be more frequent if you have significant risk factors, so ask your doctor how often it should be performed. Self examination should also not replace mammograms as lumps can be easily missed while some types of cancer will not show up as a lump. (MORE)

Look everyday into the mirror and examine your breasts, see if there are any visible changes, few women's breasts are symmetrical, that is okay, just look for change. The best time for the exam is after your period, less tenderness and/or engorgement, do the exam approx. once a month, learn how they… feel so you will notice any changes. Perform the exam in the shower, you will be relaxed and the warm soapy water makes the exam easier. Watch for changes in the skin, such as dimpling. See if there is a nipple discharge, particularly if there is blood Begin at 12:00 on the breast using the opposite hand, make small circles with your fingers feeling for anything new or different under the skin, start at the nipple and work your way out to the edge of the breast. Next, do the same thing at 1:00, 2:00, etc, all the way around the breast. Then repeat on the opposite breast. Do not forget that the tail of the breast extends into the axilla or armpit, feel under your arm for any lumps, cysts, lymph nodes, etc. If you feel something new, chances are it is a cyst, but make an appointment for after your period to have your doctor check and make sure everything is okay.

breast exam should be done every three months, let your health be your priority check your deodorant if its contains alluminium ziconnium, it causes cancer and the nearest place to your armpit is the breast! Which result to breast cancer.
Why not? Its part of what they train for. Are you saying people should only be treated by doctors of the same sex? Whats next? Would you only want to be treated by a doctor of the same ethnic group too?
i had a chiropractor tell me he could give breast exams. but he could have been lying.
Usually, it happens way after puberty. Though, if your immediate family ever had prostate cancer, the age for exams decreases.
You can find articles about it easily online. I wouldn't recommend doing it unless you are in a major risk group, because it turned me into a major hypochondriac...not kidding. And you can damage your testicles if you do it wrong, or excessively.
Of course why not I would love to have a nude female doctor makes it less stress full. I would not have a problem being nude in front of her..after all she is a doctor..
Once a month is a good idea, this way you will know your body and will notice any changes that might occur.
It's a way to examine your own testicles for possible signs of cancer. It's a personal decision as to whether or not you want to do it though, almost every man who does them will become unnecessarily worried, including myself.
They say around 16, but if you don't want to, don't do it. Testicular self exams turned me into a hypochondriac, and I temporarily injured my testicles from becoming so obssessed.
Can a female patient request not to have a female nurse in the room during a pelvic breast exam performed by a male doctor?
She could certainly request that and, for his protection, the physician could certainly refuse to complete the exam without the presence of a witness or chaperone.
A baby should be able to support itself and sit up by age 5 or 6 months.
Is it best to ask to see a male doctor for a testicle exam or should i just book an appointment with my regular female doctor?
If you are worried about your testicles then it is best to first see your primary physician, if they find something wrong or want a second opinion they will refer you to a urologist. If you are asking this question because you are uncomfortable with this type of exam with your female doctor then it …is best to find a new Doctor, one that you are comfortable with. Being comfortable with your doctor is very important, if your comfortable then the whole experience will be much easier on both you and the doctor (MORE)
Yes. Exams show what you know and you're weaknesses. In computers, it shows vulnerabilites that need to be corrected or that could allow hackers to infiltrate.
Much like breast exam for women, you are going to notice changes before anyone else will. The sooner a problem is found, the easier it is to treat and the chance of survival is much greater.
By your self by rubbing them and if you have a lump then you go to the doctor.
I'm a male who had a very thorough physical by my (new to me) female doctor. Pretty much everything that could be examined, inside and out, was. After meeting my doctor and talking with her about my medical history and current concerns, I felt comfortable enough that I decided to not ask for a chape…rone for the exam. And that's the thing here; there is no hard-fast rule as it has to do more with your or your physician's comfort level. If my doctor felt uncomfortable, she would have likely asked if I minded a nurse in the exam room (would have been okay with me, too). So, there "should" only be another person present if you are uncomfortable being examined alone by your female doc. Don't forget that any doctor sees many patients a day and at the point in their career where they're part of a practice, a body is a body, male or female, and there are certain procedures for examining that body which the doctor goes through. As an aside, my doctor had a great bedside manner, sense of humor, and very good hands. Also, I have to say that she listened much better and took more time during the interview and exam than I had experienced with male doctors. Not sure if this is anyone else's experience but it is what will cause me to keep her as my PCP. Hope this helps a bit... (MORE)
A testicular self-examination (TSE) is the procedure by which a man checks the appearance and consistency of his testes.
The testicles are gently rolled and massaged between the fingers and thumb to feel for bumps, swelling, tenderness, or irregularities.
The testicular self-exam is best performed in the shower or bath, because warm water relaxes the scrotum.
A testicular exam is when you roll your testicles around in your hands to feel for potential cancer/tumors. Is it important? Yes, however it is not as important as breast exams for women, since breast cancer is more common than testicular cancer. It can also lead to hypochondria, so don't do it …unless you're sure that you are comfortable with it. (MORE)

This is especially true due to… the fact that prostate cancer is more aggressive for men under the age of 50 years old. (MORE)
It is important for you to know about other students or an audience listening to your speech that most are anxious when making speeches themselves although a few manage to cover up their anxiety. You must realize you are not the only one that is nervous. Believe in yourself and the speech you are ma…king and if you should have a heckler (someone that is trying to interrupt your speech) just say, 'Yes, you have something to add.' Pause for a few moments and continue on with your speech. Also know that many famous people that have no recourse, but to give speeches have to do so. King George in the movie 'The King's Speech' where he had to make various speeches was a stutterer, but through the counseling he received he managed to get over his fear, so if a King can so can you! It would also be to your advantage to take a course on speech giving because it will be a plus for you in the working world. (MORE)
Yes. In fact, once over the age of 15, girls are twice as likely to become depressed than boys. This has to do with estrogen levels. More girls depressed than boys = more girls self harm than boys. This is not to say that boys do not, however, self harm. Because many do.

Misconduct is frowned upon in the US Military. As a member of the military, you are expected to maintain the highest honor and integrity. Even possessing fore knowledge of test materials can be considered a crime. The Uniform Code of Military Justice has a catch-all category called the "General Arti…cle". The General Article permits commanders to pursue swift punishment for crimes against honesty, obedience, good order, discipline, and generally failure to comply with orders.

To conduct a self-exam for breast cancer, the person should lie on a bed with the arm of the side of the breast being checked raised to above your head. The person should then proceed to start from the center and press down on the breast with the fingertips and spiral out from there at short interva…ls to check for lumps. When done, repeat on the other side. The person should then stand up and face the mirror and visually check the breasts for any odd asymmetries, puckering or leakage from the nipples (assuming one is not currently breastfeeding).
