Default Man awarded $870K after doctors remove wrong testicle

A Pennsylvania jury has awarded $870,000 to a man whose surgeon removed the wrong testicle.

Steven Haines, 54, sued Dr. V. Spencer Long, whom Haines went to see in 2013 after suffering pain in his right testicle for 15 years. According to The Washington Post, an ultrasound revealed that the testicle had atrophied after damage from a previous injury, and surgical removal of the testicle was scheduled to help alleviate Hanes's pain.

I'm surprised that the verdict didn't go above 1M.

I'm surprised he wasn't awarded more as well.

There are a lot of problems that will happen due to the wrong one removed: the remaining one will have to be removed too. Implants needed. Testosterone shots needed, lack of sex drive, no more kids (although at 54 that's a bit moot but certainly not impossible), etc etc etc.

You can live fairly normally with just healthy one.
