The cable network TLC just announced that it will be airing a special titled The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum. The one-hour program airs Monday, Aug. 19 and chronicles the story of Wesley Warren Jr., a 49-year-old Vegas man with a rare medical condition known as “scrotal lymphedema.” The show will track the man’s story leading up to the surgical removal of the swollen sack that left him in his own words with “a nub an inch long.”
According to the channel, the program will follow “Wes’s life as he deals with day-to-day challenges that are easy for most people. Due to the large size of his scrotum, Wes has difficulty with simple tasks like walking, preparing meals and even going to the restroom.”
Mr. Warren underwent surgery recently to remove the giant testicle sack and at one point even considered selling it on ebay in order to pay for the operation.
There have been conflicting reports as to the actual weight of his former testicles. As Dr. Joel Gelman, a professor of urology notes, “The main specimen, after surgery, was 132 lbs, but we can’t accurately predict its total weight. With an additional specimen, tissue and cell fluid not taken into overall consideration, the starting weight could have been over 160 lbs.”
