A medical condition that has caused his scrotum to swell more than 45 kg has forced an American man to raise 1 million dollars for his expensive surgery.
Wesley Warren Jr, from Las Vegas went public about his condition also known as "scrotal elephantiasis", because he is desperate to raise money for the costly operation.
AdvertisementWarren's, 47, scrotum is so large that he has trouble walking and using the bathroom.
"It's not easy to get around," the Courier Mail quoted Warren as telling the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
"It makes me stay in most of the time."
He developed the rare condition three years ago, and has been depressed since then.
His condition is rarely seen outside of the tropical areas of Africa and Asia and is usually caused by a mosquito-spread parasitic infection.
But Warren said he had never travelled to tropical areas and believes the condition is down to an accident in 2008, when he caught his testicles with his leg while twisting in bed, and next day onwards his scrotum had grown to "the size of a soccer ball" and continued growing.
