Man unable to have children wins a 30,000 pound settlement

A man received a 30,000 pound settlement from a British hospital after doctors wrongly removed his second testicle. One of the man's testicle's had been removed due to a tumour and doctors removed the other one as well, wrongly believing it too had a tumour. They also failed to retain a sperm sample for future child bearing even though the man had requested it be done. The hospital has also changed it's procedures to prevent reoccurrence.
