Welcome to the “Dumb and Dumber ” series where everyday we pick someone to be showcased as the Daily Dumb.

Today’s “Daily Dumb” comes the medical field this time around. Dr. Ramon Vazquez from Florida (of course he’s from Florida..) was performing routine back surgery on a patient and belived the patients kidney was a cancer tumor and removed it. This man removed a kidney because he thought it was cancer. You’d think that by being a doctor he’d know what a kidney looks like, but apparently he didn’t. The patient filled a complaint against Vazquez who could face a fine and even lose his medical liscence. It just amazes me that a professional could see a perfectly functioning kidney and go “yup, defienitly cancer. Going to need to remove that. No need to talk to the patient about it, let’s just take it out”.
