A Las Vegas man who suffers from a rare condition that made his scrotum swell to 100 pounds is basking in the fame that his giant organ has brought him.
In fact, the attention is proving so intoxicating that Wesley Warren Jr turned down an offer to perform the $1 million corrective surgery for free because he would have had to give up the rights to his story. A second doctor has agreed to waive most of the cost for the procure, but Mr Warren still hasn't taken him up on the offer.
The watermelon-size scrotum Mr Warren carries between his legs has landed him on the Howard Stern Show and the Comedy Central program Tosh.0 and made him a local celebrity in his hometown.
The surgery is highly complicated and he fears he could die on the operating table.
The massive swelling is caused by fluid building up in his scrotum. Doctors must remove the excess tissue and then completely rebuild his scrotum.
There's also a chance, and not a small one, that complications could force the surgeons to cut off his penis and testicles if his scrotum won't stop bleeding.
Dr Joel Gelman, a University of California, Irvine surgeon, who has 'never lost a patient or a testicle' while performing the operation has offered to fly to Nevada and perform the procedure for free, as well, the Review-Journal reports.
Mr Warren still hasn't followed through with Dr Gelman.
