This means he had 11lbs testicles and a three foot penis (almost one meter) that had grown so large he couldn’t wear normal clothes. The 20-year-old first noticed a cyst on his genitals in 2006 and had surgery in 2007 but the growth came back and his penis grew to 5kgs. He dropped out of school because of the condition and was later diagnosed with scrotal elephantiasis. Unable to afford an operation he tried herbal remedies but to no success. He was living with his elderly grandmother, Salina. His parents died when he was five.
Finally his story was put on social media and he got the help. Forence had two operations to reduce the size of his scrotum and reconstruct his penis so that it is usable. He now hopes to start a family one day. What other things happened giving him a new life ? “I’m swimming now. I couldn’t go anywhere near the water because of the heaviness of that thing. Now I can run and I can play football,” he said.
