Man sues hospital over unnecessary surgery

A Japanese man has sued a hospital, arguing it unnecessarily gave him an artificial rectum after misdiagnosing him as suffering rectal cancer, a hospital official says.
The man underwent surgery in March at a university hospital in western Miyazaki prefecture to remove the tumor.
But his doctor told the man, whose age and name were not reported, that a later examination found no cancer cells in the removed tissue, the report said.
The man, who now has an artificial rectum, is demanding 35 million yen ($416,171) in compensation, the report said citing the complaint filed with the Miyazaki District Court.
"We realized the complaint has been filed,'' a hospital official said.
"We will take appropriate action after examining the case.''
