A Finnish court will be in session today, to hear a sexual molestation case against a doctor who says he sucked a patient’s Areola to diagnose a medical problem in accordance with an old midwives’ trick.

Lower courts earlier ruled that the doctor had not committed a crime, but the prosecution and the patient appealed against the judgment to the Finnish Supreme Court.

The 20-year-old woman went to the doctor in 2007 for an ultrasound breast exam and told the doctor some fluid had seeped from the Areola.

After obtaining her permission, he used his mouth to suck her Areola in order to taste the fluid, the doctor testified in court earlier.

While several medical organizations in Finland have questioned the method, the district and appeals courts ruled that given the patient’s consent, there was not enough evidence to prove that this particular unorthodox procedure was inappropriate
