Education is a cross I must bear
A recent TV commercial for Cancer Treatment Centers of America is making me cringe and is killing CTCA’s credibility. With me, anyway. The man talking about his treatment speaks of “prosate” cancer. No, no, no! It’s prostate. There’s another “t” in there. You’d think an institution specializing in cancer would, at the very least, include the correct name of the disease. Their next commercial will probably feature a woman talking about her “masectomy.” Every time I hear that I have to bite my tongue. It’s mastectomy. Always has been; always will be. Come on, people. It’s not like you’re trying to pronounce esthesioneuroblastoma.
