Doctors insist man with 100-pound scrotum has a weight problem

Dan Maurer of Battle Creek, Michigan, suffers from a 100-pound scrotum, but for years his doctors have been continually telling him he just needed to lose weight. So much for getting a second opinion indeed. Since his late 20s, he has been exercising regularly based on doctors’ orders but his scrotum kept growing. He only found out what his real condition was when he watched a TLC television show called what else but The Man with the 132-Pound Scrotum and realized that excess watery fluid has collected around his testicles as a result of blockages in his lymphatic vessel.

Maurer, now 39, is desperately raising money to pay for the costly procedure of having his scrotum removed. I would strongly suggest he starts with those doctors who told him it was only a weighty issue.
