A Las Vegas man named Wesley Warren received worldwide attention and a show on TLC for his rare condition that caused his scrotum to balloon to more than 130 pounds. He died in March due to complications from diabetes, but the rare condition is back in the news because a Michigan man is suffering from the same thing.
Dan Maurer of Battle Creek, Michigan, has been diagnosed with scrotal lymphedema and has a 100-pound scrotum. The 39-year-old says his condition went undiagnosed for many years, but when he saw the TLC show about Wesley Warren, he diagnosed himself. He says he decided to go public about his condition because he wants to undergo the dangerous and very expensive surgery, but needs help raising the money.
