    Let's say testicular cancer than. The analogy holds.
    No, you specifically used Prostate cancer thinking you were clever, and now that you've been shown to post from ignorance, you want to change the goal posts...Stick with your statement, and take your defeat like a man.

    "Skene's paraurethral glands and ducts are homologous to the male prostate (2). Recent studies supporting this homology, as reviewed by Zaviačič et al. (3,4), are postmortem and detailed histological examinations of the urethras of 130 women, followed by biochemical and immunohistochemical studies that demonstrated expression of PSA and prostate-specific acid phosphatase (PSAP) in Skene's paraurethral glands and ducts. These studies unequivocally substantiate the existence of the female prostate.

    The female homologue of the male prostate is of clinical significance not only as a focus for acute and chronic infection, but also as the origin of other pathologic entities, including adenocarcinoma (3,4), a cancer which shows, as does its male counterpart, localized expression of PSA and PSAP (3,4).

    Thus, there is convincing evidence that prostatic tissue exists in the female, and that the term “female prostate” is both fully justified and preferable to the terminology Skene's glands and ducts. The latter incorrectly implies that some other structure of an extraprostatic nature, rather than the prostate itself, is involved. If the female prostate exhibits the immunopermissiveness observed in the male prostate (5), it may also serve as a site for viral latency and origin of infection in women with human immunodeficiency virus.

    Of perhaps equal importance is the expression of PSA (6). The existence in women of the counterpart of the male prostate, shown to express PSA, may provide a note of caution in considering the molecular basis of the apparent anomalous expression of PSA in male and female nonprostatic tissues, e.g., in female breast (1). Given observations on the association of PSA detection in breast cancer with steroid hormonereceptor positive tumors, one may envision (6) the existence of a complex regulatory gene network controlling the expression of PSA in several organs. Therefore, a given tissue (depending on the state of cellular differentiation) may express previously repressed genes after neoplastic transformation. Also, and not mutually exclusive, somatic mutations may lead to specific changes in PSA genes in cancer cell clones (6)."

    You're 12 years behind the times:

    In 2002, female paraurethral glands, or Skene's glands, were officially renamed the female prostate by the Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology

    The Female Prostate
    But it's really not a prostate in any real sense of the word, anymore than a clitoris is a penis.

    But nice way to weasel out of another situation where you were overmatched.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    The problem with the post above is that the kids in those programs earn the university far more money than any student/professor. So they do in fact earn their "opportunities".

    It's not a prostate gland, and doctors do not refer to it as such. Skenes gland. I type doctors reports every day, and never have I heard one refer to a woman having a prostate gland.

    The Female Prostate
    Well, my job is to type doctor's reports, and I type ALL kinds of reports, and I have never ever heard a doctor refer to the Skenes gland on women as a prostate gland.

    You mean someone who crushes your illogical statements regularly?

    I'm sure I'd be like most people you meet and just smile, nod, and get away quickly.

    Okay, well prostates and Skenes glands is really not what the thread is about, and I'm wondering how we got off on this topic anyway.

    It's because Riverbad was complaining that insurers have to pay for women's health care when men sign up.

    It's a stupid, failed argument against the ACA because all insurance covers stuff you'll never use. Like a woman's policy will cover prostate removal. Or testicular cancer.
