Woman Has Prostate Cancer

This morning I overheard my colleague telling another colleague, "My friend's mother just found out that she has prostate cancer. The doctor gave her six months."

That immediately caught my attention. Unable to contain my curiosity I blurted out, "How can she have prostate cancer?"

"Why not?" she replied.

I explained, "Women don't have prostate glands la! Only men can get prostate cancer."

That's when she clarified, "Oh, I was saying that she had FOURTH STAGE cancer."

And we had a good laugh over something that is certainly no laughing matter.
