Waking Up To A Surprise

A mechanic from in Wichita Falls, Texas, who claimed two doctors removed his penis without his consent after mistakenly believing he had cancer has reached an out-of-court settlement during his civil trial.

Hurshell Ralls, 67, had surgery in November 1999 after his doctor told him a biopsy showed he had bladder cancer. It was never mentioned that the cancer could be spreading and that they might have to remove other organs, Ralls said. The suit alleged that doctors did not test a tissue sample to determine if he had penile cancer – a procedure that could have been done at the clinic in 30 minutes to an hour. Another doctor looking at cell slides later found that Ralls did not have penile cancer, according to the suit.
