The Prostate Examination Simulator is an indispensable model for both students and professionals. Instructors have the ability to teach techniques of prostate examination with no harm or embarrassment to real patients. Now every student can learn to detect beginning stages of prostate cancer and increase chances of patient survival. Four separate prostate glands are supplied with the torso, representing one benign gland and three stages of prostatic carcinoma in varying degrees of development. Each gland can be inserted into the prostate torso to allow realistic practice in diagnosis by rectal palpation.
STAGE A GLAND - Benign, slightly enlarged, but otherwise normal prostate gland.
STAGE B GLAND - A discrete, hard nodule is palpable in the upper right quadrant. This simulates a beginning stage of carcinoma.
STAGE C GLAND - The spread of carcinoma is demonstrated in this gland. The small nodule has increased in size and has become an external hard mass on the surface of the gland.
STAGE D GLAND - This gland is totally replaced with carcinoma. The entire gland will feel hard and irregular. Life/form Prostate Examination Simulator is complete with four glands, hard carrying case, lubricant, and teaching guide. 5 Year warranty. Size: 22 W x 15 D x 12 H.

i bought the prostate exam-er two days ago and my dog happened to find it in my closet. he pulled it out and start preforming a prostate exam on it! he now owns his own hospital and is ranked the 11th most talented doctor in the world! so proud of my pooch! :)
My students learn so much better with the simulator first, using a patient is very off-putting for some. So starting with this is great. Awesome product!!
