Man sues over testicle removal,the part removed wasn’t cancerous ..ouch !
Heres another horror story about male private parts that you all enjoy so much !
A Middletown man who was partially castrated during a 2007 medical procedure has sued the doctor after another medical group told him the body part removed wasn’t cancerous as he was led to believe.
Stephen Kosti filed a Thursday civil suit in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court against Dr. Gary Kirsh and Tri-State Urological Services in Norwood.
Kirsh said he didn't remember Kosti.
Calls to Tri-State Urological Services weren’t answered.
After he suffered pain in his groin, Kosti went to Kirsh in May 2007. On May 14, Kosti’s suit notes, Kosti was admitted to Jewish Hospital for what he thought was an exploratory procedure on his scrotum.
Instead, Kosti said Kirsh removed his right testicle leading Kosti to believe it was cancerous and, untreated, would leave Kosti with just six months to live, the suit alleges.
“Kirsh did not at any time disclose to or discuss with (Kosti) the fact that he would remove the right testicle without (Kosti’s) consent,” the suit notes.
After the removal, Kosti consulted with another doctor and had a medical scan from another medical group.
It “indicate(d) that the right testicle was not cancerous,” the suit notes.
The misdiagnosis alleged in the suit resulted in Kosti suffering unnecessary emotional and physical pain as well as financial problems and loss of earnings.
