Cancer Statistics and money spent searching for a cure

Post to Twitter

According to the American Cancer Society There are 205,000 new cases of breast cancer discovered each year with an annual death rate of about 40,000. The ACS also states that 190,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer each year with a death rate of about 34,000 each year.

The difference in numbers is very small when you consider how many people live in America. Yet the amount of money spent on research to find a cure for breast cancer is almost 50 times more money than prostate cancer. Last year the federal government directly and indirectly spent close to 11 billion dollars on breast cancer, while spending a paltry 2 billion dollars on prostate cancer. Niether of these figures includes any public donations.

Why such a huge divergence in spending? Because not a month goes by that while I’m flipping through the channels trying to find something to watch, that I come across CSPAN’s coverage of testimony in front of some special subcommittee and a bunch of women whining about more funding for breast cancer research. I don’t know how they do it, but women seem to possess the ability to cry on command. Because of this incessant whining, these congressmen give them more money to go away. Their collective heads are probably ready to explode after a couple of days of sniveling.

Could you imagine a bunch of men going in front of congress to testify about prostate cancer? If it were me, I wear a donut on my lapel to show solidarity to my fellow prostate cancerous brothers. For those of you that don’t know, the prostate gland is sort of shaped like a small donut. Or I guess the donut could it could represent my asshole. I know, I’d have donuts made special that look like giant assholes!

Anyway, I’d get up there and say ” I was at the doctor for a physical and he put his finger up my ass. He sounded a bit alarmed and he asked the nurse to order a P.S.A. test. I didn’t know what that meant but when I asked my cousin who is a veterinarian, he told me it was a “Pour Suds on Asshole” test.” He said something about watching the way the beer foams on your sphincter to determine whether or not you have asshole cancer.

You see what I mean? I have a theory that breast cancer gets more funding than prostate cancer because one has to do with boobs, and the other with assholes. Think about it. A group of congress people mostly men, deciding how much money to spend on which cancer. THEY’RE MEN THAT WOULD RATHER SAVE BOOBS OVER THEIR OWN ASSHOLES ! It’s like ” screw it, I’d rather be dead than face a life without titties.”

    Never mind if your feelings are hurt by the delivery. Try to rationalize away the truth based in objective fact. Look up the definition of truth and objective fact versus subjective fact in Black's Law Dictionary. Let's all continue to live in a world of the Emperor's new clothes.

    I'm a woman, and I agree. The amount of  government funding for breast cancer is outrageous. There are other types of cancer, you know. Yes, this article is sexist. But serves a valid point. Honestly, get over yourselves! Girls are just as sexist as guys, guys just don't care. Chill out. Breast cancer isn't even the top killing cancer in women; lung cancer is. The only reason breast cancer gets more money is because of a bunch of whiny bitches like Susan G Koman. Get over it, other people's family members have died because of some other type of cancer, and you don't see them parading around getting billions of dollars worth of government funding for them. It's completely unjust

    I was just told I may have prostate cancer. Doctor wants to do a biopsy which will require a needle to pierce the rectal wall "15" times!!

    That means that whatever is on the rectal wall will end up inside my prostite. This upsets my wife as much as me.

    I thank GOD every day for the miricle of becoming one flesh with a wonderfull woman, Something some of you will never never know because you are'nt worth it and you don't deserve it.

  4. I find this post totally offensive, as many of us are struggling with breast cancer. This is not about saving the titties as you say, but it's about keeping women alive and trying to find a cure.

     

    I think you are a total pig.
