Man forced to have his penis’ head cut off to prevent dead flesh from spreading in Australia

This man paid a painful price for letting his health go limp.

Doctors at Flinders Medical Centre near Adelaide in South Australia were left with no choice but to amputate the tip of a patient’s genitals, reducing his member to a “penile stump,” according to the case report published in BMJ Journals.

But during his examination, medics noticed that the end of his penis had turned white with black spots.

Surgeons quickly realised that it was gangrenous and the dead flesh needed to be sliced off urgently to prevent it from spreading.
