A man from Michigan, Dan Maurer, has a 100 pound scrotum. You read that correctly, 100 freaking pound scrotum!That’s Unusually Large!
A Michigan man is making a plea to the public to help him raise money for a life-changing surgery. He suffers from a rare disease called scrotal lymphedema, a condition that has caused his scrotum to grow unusually large and weighing one hundred pounds.
Five years ago, Dan Maurer life was on track. He was in the middle of getting his weight under control, losing 50 pounds, when his mother says he had a setback.
“He noticed that his groin was starting to grown and, at that time, it was about the size of a cantaloupe,” Maurer’s mother says. A visit to a Michigan doctor turned up little in terms of results, “because they really hadn’t told him what they were dealing with,” she says.
I just do not understand how he could let an essential body part like his scrotum get larger than a cantaloupe without finding a competent doctor.
The other bad news – his health insurance will not pay for an out of network doctor. So, Dan Maurer is now trying to raise money on gofundme so that he can go to his first appointment with a specialist in California.
How can he possibly do anything like stand, walk, or even sit? Don’t get me wrong I have sympathy for the man. It must be uncomfortable to have something that large between your legs 24/7.
What I think would be uncomfortable is that his mother knows so much about her son’s scrotum. After changing diapers and potty training I don’t want to think about my son’s boy parts. I am done with that department. Unless he knocks up some girl before he is married… then I may have to remove something.
