Medical Case

In 2015, a 37-year-old Lancashire businessman underwent MRI scan for suspected bladder cancer after he found blood in his urine. Doctors instead found out that he had a full set of female reproductive organs with a fully functioning uterus, ovaries and even a cervix. Because he had ovaries it is possible he could produce eggs, and since he had a uterus it is conceivable he could even carry a baby himself. Medical staff advised him to have the organs surgically removed, even though it could trigger the menopause.
