He has a surgery done back in October to have a circumcision performed, to remove foreskin from the man.

The surgeon, Dr. John M. Patterson, amputated his penis instead, stating that he found cancer.

Tests have shown that there was indeed cancer present.

Phillip Seaton and his wife Deborah are mad though that no consent was given.

The lawsuit is due to the fact that Seaton suffered pain, mental anguish, as well as the loss of enjoyment of life.
