A Las Vegas man is looking to raise $1 million for a rare condition that has kept him homebound for most of his life.
Wesley Warren, 47, needs $1 million for surgery to correct his Scrotal Elephantitis, a condition that has made his genitals swell to more than 100 pounds. The surgery is not covered by health insurance, so Warren is looking to raise the money himself.
While the condition is typically seen in parts of Africa and caused by mosquito bites, he says that he has never been to any tropical area. Instead, he believes that his condition occurred after he accidentally squeezed his testicles with his legs while moving around in bed. The next day, his scrotum was the size of a soccer ball.
