Man With 100-Pound Scrotum, Turns Down Free Surgery Offer

 A man who made headlines for his 100-pound scrotum now says he turned down an offer for free surgery to get rid of his bulging problem. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Wesley Warren Jr.declined
an opportunity to have the “Dr. Oz Show” pay for the medical expenses
associated with the surgery, partially because they wanted exclusive
interview rights. But Warren bristles at the notion that he won’t get surgery because
he doesn’t want to lose the fame he’s garnered because of his
condition, which is caused by an excess of watery fluid collecting
around his testicles.
 
“Who would want to live like this?” he said. “I just don’t want to die during the operation.”
As the Journalpreviously
reported, Warren’s scrotum prevents him from holding down a job and
makes it difficult for him to urinate properly. But the surgery is
complicated and it carries the risk, among others, that his penis and
testicles could have to be completely removed if surgeons can’t stop the
bleeding.
 
Warren’s Facebook page, created back in 2011 to raise money for surgery, garnered the expected mocking comments, but also words of encouragement.
