I do medical transcription for a living. Trust me some of these mistakes are easy to make. It is easy to let your mind wander and not pay attention to what you are typing. And doctors will say things such as the above and they do not make sense but, by law, you have to type it as they say it. They all make me laugh too, though. And sorry, but think I can do without a circus sized penis!!!!!
