Oops.
The British Health System paid out more than a million pounds last year to men who had the wrong testicle removed.
The Daily Mail reported:

More than £1million in damages have been paid out by the NHS to men who have had the wrong testicle removed by surgeons.

In the last four years there have been 56 successful claims made by men who have been affected by medical blunders, according to the National Health Service Litigation Authority.

In most cases the men didn’t need surgery at all and in others surgeons also had to remove the second testicle.

The NHS normally pays out around £20,000 if the wrong testicle has been removed.

Roger Goss, co-director of Patient Concern, told The Sun: ‘It is amazing that surgeons don’t always take enough care to guarantee that they are removing the correct testicle.

‘Despite the huge total compensation bill, individual payments sound modest for wrecking men’s lives.’
