Would folks be well-advised to AVOID seeing any doctors in SWEDEN?

Here's why that question was asked:

Man’s Penis Amputated After Wrong Diagnosis

A Swedish man’s penis was amputated due to complications with cancer after he was initially misdiagnosed with inflammation and then had to wait months for a hospital appointment, Swedish news website The Local reported.

The man, who is in his 60s, first visited a clinic in southern Sweden in September 2009 to be treated for a urinary tract infection, but he returned a few months later complaining of more irritation.

The doctor on duty diagnosed the problem as inflammation. But after three weeks of unalleviated irritation, the patient was instructed to seek further treatment at a hospital.

By the time his appointment rolled around -- five months later -- doctors told him he had cancer and his penis would have to be amputated.

It was unclear if the man would have been able to avoid amputation had the cancer been detected earlier, but the case was referred to Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare, which reviews reports of injuries and malpractice in the country’s heath care system.

The USA isn't much better, either. Play the video at this website:

They have removed the wrong body parts in the US. too. Despite that they have xrays showing the diseased Organ. They remove the wrong side.
Dr's. work too are many hours and everything is about money.

Ah, that's nothing--doctors in the US were cutting off diabetics' feet as the standard treatment, when all they had to do for the great percentage of their patients was provide them with oxidation patches for their diabetic sores.

It's hard to tell how many thousands of diabetics have lost their feet due to this barbaric practice.

Doctors overseas can be as bad or as good as anywhere. I heard from a case in Germany where the wrong leg was amputated. Maybe this patient in Sweden now gets an implant, a real "Rod" , of which he can be proud of......

He won't be able to FEEL the same sensations that he had with "the real thing."
