A man has undergone life-saving surgery to reduce the size of his 11lbs testicles and THREE FOOT penis that had grown so large he couldn’t wear normal clothes.
Horace Owiti Opiyo, known as Forence to friends, was left with testicles twenty times the average size after a growth continued to get larger despite surgery to remove it.
The 20-year-old first noticed a cyst on his genitals in 2006 and had surgery in 2007 but the growth came back and his penis grew to almost a metre long, weighing 5kgs.
He dropped out of school because of the condition and was later diagnosed with scrotal elephantiasis.
This can be caused by a mosquito bite injecting larvae into the bloodstream, which then grow into parasitic worms blocking the body’s drainage system and causing swelling.
The condition left Forence, who is from Kibigori, Kenya, in extreme agony and prevented him from living a normal life.
Unable to afford an operation he tried herbal remedies but to no success.
It was only when his story was put on social media that he got the help he needed.
Speaking about the first time he noticed the cyst, he said: “This thing started very small, like a boil. Then it was the size of my fist.
“It just continued to grow bigger and bigger.”
