Ohio Man Sues for Partial Castration
A man living in Ohio recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against his doctor for reportedly partially castrating him.
The man says that the doctor believed one of his testicles was cancerous, only to find out later that it was healthy.
Doctor Performs Unnecessary Surgery
Stephen M. Kosti was experiencing pain in his groin when he sought medical help from Dr. Gary M. Kirsh.
After an evaluation, Kirsh determined that Kosti was suffering from a condition in which water accumulates in the scrotum.
Kirsh had his patient admitted to the Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati, where his right testicle was removed.
According to court reports, Kirsch told Kosti that he had cancerous cells in his testicle to such an extent that he may only live anther six months.
However, after his surgery, Kosti consulted an oncologist and had a PET scan and results showed no signs of cancer.
Kosti has filed a suit for the doctor’s misdiagnosis and is seeking compensation for pain and suffering, emotional damage and loss of enjoyment of life.
