Prostate story offers double entendres

Story on prostate cancer research both worries and amuses reader

Re: Prostate cancer proving to be a tough nut to crack (News, Oct. 23)

This article was at once both comforting and alarming. It is comforting to learn that such headway has been made with highly technological research, even if some of us might have difficulty with verbiage regarding nanoparticles. The converse is true of the claim that contrary to popular belief, “PSA levels have no bearing on cancer in the prostate,” so that for now, “the only way is to go in and remove tissue.”

I have to admit however, the wording of the banner headline really brought tears to my eyes.
