    Matt Lauer went on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" to discuss men's health issues.

    Today Show host Matt Lauer swapped early mornings for evening when he stopped by "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" to discuss his--and Today's-- efforts to raise awareness for men's health issues.

    Last week, as part of a "No Shave November" initiative, Lauer and fellow host Al Roker visited a urologist to have prostate examinations.

    For Leno, the nature of the exam provided a good opportunity to poke fun at Lauer and Roker.

    "We have footage. This is Matt and Al in the room getting ready," Leno said. The proceeding clip featured two men--with Lauer and Roker's heads superimposed on--twerking.

    Lauer took the joke in stride, responding, "You want to be limber. You want to be loose a little bit."

    Leno and Lauer also discussed how all Today's male correspondents were handling growing out their facial hair. "We're all growing beards," Lauer said. "We're trying to get people to tune in and say, 'Wow they look awful, but hey, I should get checked out.'"
