Man with ‘world’s biggest scrotum’ refuses surgery

I remember when I was young I heard horror stories of men were caused with swollen scrotum “Ibi” they call it in Ibo. Those days I also believe that if I swallowed an Orange seed, it would grow a tree on the top of my head. I am sure we believed a lot of things as kids, adult never give up an opportunity to scare a child to death. Here is a story of a man with a special condition of “Ibi” swollen scrotum.

A special condition Lymphedema scrotal, which causes the scrotum to swell with aqueous liquid has triggered the scrotum of

Wesley Warren Jr. to grow to a massive 100 pounds and the Las Vegas man embarks on a campaign to raise $1 million for corrective surgery.

A doctor at the University of California at Irvine, has been in contact with Warren, and is also offering his services for free as long as Nevada Medicaid pays for the room.

However, given the possibility of having the surgery – even at no cost – the 47 year old, remains reluctant to undergo surgery, the news media reported.

In any case, Warren’s new found fame could have gone to his head and seems to be enjoying his celebrity status. “I will make a decision when I’m ready,” said Warren.He was also concerned that physicians selected might kill him during surgery.

Without the growth, Warren would weigh about 300 pounds, he said. Its large size makes urination difficult and impossible for a normal sex life. He attributes his condition to a painful episode in 2008 when he turned in bed and crushing the testicles.

“It was like a sharp pain through my body,” he said. “When it stopped, it was like a huge truck and trailer went off the top of me.”

Warren’s fears of complications during surgery are not unfounded, doctors say there is potential for serious bleeding.

However, Warren scoffs at the idea that he is more interested in fame to cure his condition:

“Who would want to live like this” he said. “I do not want to die during the operation either”.
