    Recently someone asked about prostate pain, here's a good article about it:

    http://articles.latimes.com/2011/oct/08/health/la-he-psa-test-20111008 (Why discourage routine prostate cancer PSA test?)

    Here's a very relevant quote from the article, showing the obstacles preventing Dr. Sarno's TMS theory, from being accepted by the medical/industrial complex:

    "Any time a medical test or treatment that we believe should work is subjected to science and the science doesn't show what we hoped for, it's very disturbing to the medical establishment and to patients," he said. But, he added, "we have to eat a pretty big chunk of crow and say this didn't turn out to be true."
    ***
    "We have a culture of patients and families and physicians and others who believe strongly that the PSA test works, when the reality is the evidence is suggesting that is just not the case,"
