US Man Sues Doc After Circumcision Operation Got a Little Out of Hand…
He probably never imagined it would end this way but Philip Seaton was in for a rude shock after his circumcision operation- the surgeons chopped off his penis!

Furious Philip Seaton, from Tennessee, is claiming that he did not give surgeons consent to cut off his manhood. He has now sued the surgeons responsible for this grave mistake.

Surgeons at the hospital in Kentucky said that they had to take the drastic action after discovering a life-threatening cancer.

Seaton is suing after claiming he suffered "mental anguish, pain, and has lost the enjoyment of life".

The lawsuit, filed by Seaton, states doctors had consent to 'perform a circumcision and only a circumcision' but that Seaton did not consent to his penis being removed.

Seaton's lawyer Kevin George said that the surgeons should not have acted so quickly.

"Sometimes you have an emergency and you have to do this, but he could have very easily closed him up and said, 'Here are your options. You have cancer'," the Daily Telegraph quoted George, as saying.

"The family would have said 'We want a second opinion. This is a big deal'," he added.
