Cancer patient has WRONG testicle removed by bungling surgeons

A man fears he will never father a child after bungling surgeons removed the wrong testicle in a cancer op.

His healthy testicle was removed by mistake – then sewn back on after doctors realized their mistake 40 minutes later.

The victim, now suing for compensation, said: “They definitely took out the wrong testicle. It should have been the cancerous one.

"It seems I can no longer father children. I have gone through incredible stress and strain.”

Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust said: “We can confirm this incident took place.

"The trust offers its sincere ­apologies. Remedial surgery took place at the time.

“The trust carried out a thorough investigation and immediately made changes to its processes.”
