Could have been a costly "No"

In 2002 the Skene's gland in a female, also known as the paraurethral gland, was officially renamed the female prostate by the Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology.

I graduated from medical school in 1985.

I've always been proud of the fact that I've kept up with continuing medical education over the years.

I can honestly say I was not aware of this change until today.

I wouldn't have even thought to use a "life-line" if I was on a game show and was asked "is there such a thing as the female prostate?"

I would have said "NO!"

I could have lost a lot of $$$.
