Looks like Stephen Colbert was a little too soon to propose a new Today show segment: “Where in the World is Matt Lauer’s Dignity?”

As announced yesterday, both Lauer and his Today pal Al Roker underwent live prostate exams on the air this morning. (And yes, there was a method to their madness: The show is supporting the men’s health initiative No Shave November, which raises awareness for issues like prostate and testicular cancer.)

In case you’re curious: Lauer’s prostate is A-okay. Roker’s is — gulp — a little enlarged, “but not terrible” according to Dr. David Samadi.

Though the procedure is a little uncomfortable, Lauer guesses that there’s something else holding men back from getting their exams: “I think a lot of guys are also concerned about the embarrassment factor of it, so my advice would be find a doctor you’re very comfortable with.” And don’t worry, he continued: “That embarrassment factor is not going to be an issue.” I mean, as long as your name is “Matt Lauer.”

*except not really, because you really wanted to know NOTHING ABOUT MATT LAUER AND AL ROKER’S PROSTATE HEALTH.
