Medical Trivia (Answer at 44:56) – Shortly after 1pm on April 12, 1945, while sitting for a portrait at his vacation retreat in Warm Springs, GA, a man quietly uttered his last and very famous words: “I have a terrific pain in the back of my head,” and collapsed in his chair.

Listener Questions (46:50) – Is there any other method of testing for prostate cancer other than a cat scan and prostate biopsy? My last 6 PSA tests were 3.9, 4.6, 4.5, 3.9, and 4.6. My IntelliScore is 45.58. The IntelliScore is the reason for the request for biopsy. Any ideas?
