AMERICAN Wesley Warren Jr has told how he needs a $1million operation to remove his SEVEN STONE testicles.
The 47-year-old has suffered in silence with the enormous growth on his scrotum but is now pleading for help so he can get life-changing surgery.
His testicles have grown so large that he cannot wear jeans or trousers anymore and lives on a diet of antibiotics and medications.
Instead Wesley, from Las Vegas, US, has to wear a hoodie - placing his legs in the arms and using the hood to support the growth.
Wesley said: "It's not easy to get around, it makes me stay in most of the time."
But he refuses to let his unfortunate condition get him down, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
He added: "I want to have real friends and a relationship with a woman.

"But I'm not suicidal.
I'm too strong for that."
Doctors told him he was suffering from scrotal lymphedema — a condition that has made his lymph nodes in his scrotum swell up with watery fluid.
Wesley believes he was struck down by the embarrassing deformity when he squashed his privates while asleep in 2008.
Incredibly his testicles then started swelling up and the next morning they were "the size of a soccer ball", said Wesley.

He said: "I never felt such pain. It was like a shooting pain through my entire body.
"When it stopped, it was like a huge tractor trailer went off the top of me. I think it ruined my lymph nodes down there."

Surgeons said Wesley - who is 6ft tall and weighed 21stone before the growth took hold - would need a seven figure operation to correct the problem but that his medical insurance would not cover it.
The desperate American then went on the radio show of US shock jock Howard Stern to beg for help raising funds.

He said: "I don't like being a freak, who would?"
"But I figured that the Stern show is listened to by millions of people and they might want to help me.
I hope some millionaire or billionaire will want to help me."
He has not revealed exactly how much he has raised but tearfully said: "What I've got is a start.
"I really would like to have a relationship with a woman.
I should be in the prime of my life right now."
SCROTAL swelling can be caused by a variety of disorders - a hernia being the most common.
Another common cause is fluid accumulation between the testicle and the skin.
This is called a hydrocele.
The swelling usually only occurs on one side.
A less common but more serious and debilitating scrotal condition that can lead to massive swelling is scrotal lymphedema.
With this condition, the entire scrotum becomes extremely large as lymph fluid and tissue builds up.
Patients referred with this condition have scrotums so large that the sheer size interferes with walking.
Unfortunately, this is a disorder that is best treated with surgery to remove the mass of tissue.
In some cases, skin grafting may be required.
