You go in for a routine operation and wake up without a wang? I"m against frivolous lawsuits, but you have a case here.

Great to know they`re trained to magically sense and attack cancer like that, but chopping the whole thing off was probably rash.

Kinda glad I don`t have one now.
Then again, neither does he...

I might have been a little more understanding if they told me there was cancer. But... still! You don`t just cut of a man`s ding-dong without his consent. I don`t care WHAT you find.

Also, penis cancer is one of the worst sounding things ever.

How did the doctor know it was cancer just by looking? A circumcision doesn`t require that much invasiveness. Was there a giant tumor hanging off or something? Because I think maybe most people would go get that checked out before worrying about a circumcision...

well scotchy i disagree, the man might`ve chosen death over losing his willy. I`m pretty sure i`d like to get some last use out of it if i were in his situation.

MM... After hearing this I was like WTF?!? now, not so much. Mostly cause we now know the guy had cancer. We don`t know what stage the cancer was in, or if he had time to do anything about it. It could have been life threatening where he had x amount of days to live, or it could have been 7 months.

Really though, from that small of an article its hard to make a real decision, we don`t know everything. If it wasn`t threatening in the next week or so, then yea he shouldn`t have done it. If it was, I think he made the right call, I mean he is a doctor.

But until ALL of the facts are present, cant really judge either way.

that`s not legal OR fair. i wonder what his reaction was when he "realized his penis had been amputated."

`realize` seems like such a weak term; more like: `discovered with absolute horror.`

WHY? The doctor was male, he should`ve at least had the decency to ask him before taking his dong.

I`d love to know how the Dr. knew it was cancer. I read the whole article and didn`t see anything regarding a positive pathology or biopsy. You don`t just take away a dudes cash & prizes like that.

This man deserves a new penis, and a 10 figure settlement. Didn`t they give a man in Eastern Europe a new willy made from his middle finger on his left hand shown of "Ripley`s believe it or not" ?

Only link I could find about it, From 2003.

vv Alice, from butter`s profile statement:

"2 and a half feet tall, blond hair and a bit of a stutter. My dad frequents mens saunas and my mom tried to drown me"

It may be the case that he`s not actually 30-39. Could be a wee fib.

Why would an adult go in for a circumcision in the first place? It`s hardly the secret desire of most men to have their foreskins chopped off"

wow, can someone really be that stupid.

you know, SOMETIMES men have problems with their foreskin, and its better to just not exist..

but seriously? 30-39 and male..
and 19 and female and even i knew that o.O

This could`ve all been avoided by attempting to contact the person with his power-of-attorney.....like his wife.

I don`t blame the doctor...the dude had cancer, but wow. That sucks.

Ahaha! H0ax, that`s horrible.

You have to have time to prepare yourself when you have caner and need to amputate or remove something.

Obviously the doctor knows nothing about human behavior.

Or consent laws.

Would have been decent of them to wake him up and ask first.

Guys, if a doc told you that you had to choose between your life and your wang, what would you choose?

vv "The wife should be happy, she`ll never have to give him a blowjob again."

I imagine that`ll suit her just fine, until she feels the urge for a good stiff rooster. The selfish bitch.

And yeah, TKD, it`s your browser settings.

he really should have consulted him, thats not fair

waking up from a routine operation to find u have no penis is a big deal.

Analogy: If I leave my car in to get a routine oil change, and the guys at the garage discover that I need a complete new transmission, I`d at least expect them to give me a call to let me know before they swapped out half the friggin engine. I`d be really pissed if they just did it, when I didn`t ask them to or give consent.

And yeah, my penis is kinda more precious to me than my car...

Doctors can be wrong though. What if he didn`t have cancer?

that surgeon must have screwed up real bad if a standard cicumcision turned into full blown amputation!

"just slice along here....*makes incision* oh sh*t..."

but yeah on a serious note, its kind of a good thing what the surgeon did if he found cancer. but he shouldnt really have done that during this op.

"Dang that sucks. I would sue too, they took away his manhood."

He apparently has cancer.

But I do prefer he did only what was consented to and then told him of what he found and allowed him to get a second opinion. And THEN if it`s confirmed he has cancer... amputation is what he should do. This has NOTHING to do with "manhood" if he really did have cancer.
