HEALTHCHECK-Man born with a Womb undergoes Surgery

A 37-year-old man is preparing to have a hysterectomy after specialists discovered  he was born with a womb.
The Lancashire native believed he had bladder cancer after he saw blood in his urine. After undergoing several scans, doctors then discovered he had a full set of female reproductive organs.
telegraph reports:
Doctors believe Rob has a rare condition called persistent Müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS). This results in men developing both external male genitalia and internal female reproductive organs.

Most cases are diagnosed at birth or puberty, although people can discover they have intersex bodies — also known as differences of sex development (DSD), at any age.
