Clinical negligence compensation of more than £300,000 is being sought by a roofer who blames doctors for the fact he developed cancer of the penis.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Boguslaw Faber sustained serious injuries when he fell onto a sharp pole during an accident at work and subsequently had to be taken to the Royal London Hospital - an institution managed by the Barts and The London NHS Trust - for treatment.
However, the 50-year-old - who is from Poland but moved to the UK in 1994 - is now taking legal action on the grounds that doctors at the hospital missed evidence he had the disease.
Mr Faber claims he underwent a biopsy but medical professionals wrongly concluded he was suffering with a skin condition as opposed to cancer.
As a result of this misdiagnosis, he had to have his genitals partly amputated and is now seeking compensation through a High Court writ.
