High number of penis amputations in Brazil


Brazil's far-right President Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday (April 25) expressed horror over the 1,000 penis amputations that occur each year in the country including those due to a lack of basic hygiene, a figure he called "ridiculous and sad."

A spokeswoman for the Brazilian urology society said the figure is based on official data for penis amputations.

The society said the amputations were necessitated by untreatable infections along with cancers and complications from HIV.
