Doctor :   tell me your query
User :   This morning I noticed several small stains in my underwear that looked like blood.

User :   no, not really

User :   in my penis? no
Doctor :   ok well you do have to get it examined
User :   ok
User :   what are the possibilities?
Doctor :   is this the first time happening ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   the most probable cause is urinary track infection

Doctor :   may i know you age please ?
User :   57
Doctor :   your**
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   any history of unprotected sexual intercourse ?
User :   only with a woman I've basically been with for 8 years, and I really doubt if she has been with anyone else. We did break up for a while several months ago and I had one encounter unprotected. Wouldn't symptoms have appeared long before now if it was an std?
Doctor :   ok well your next course of action is to get a urine test done

Doctor :   if mole hasn't changed in size or color in years then forget about it
User :   I just noticed my clock. Maybe this is the solution to healthcare costs; charge by the minute!!

User :   no
Doctor :   then its ok
Doctor :   no wories
