According to Humberto Preciado’s 42 U.S.C. § 1983 suit, medical staff at Chuckawalla Valley State Prison failed to adequately treat Preciado’s hydrocele, a urological condition. Preciado alleged that he developed a hydrocele after falling and hitting his testicles while climbing into his bunk. Preciado requested medical treatment numerous times, but prison officials failed to adequately treat his hydrocele.
Preciado represented himself. See: Preciado v. Vaugh, No. 06-05748 (S.D. Cal. 2009).
