If the penis of Japanese pole vaulter Hiroki Ogita caused him embarrassment at the Rio 2016 Olympics because it knocked off the bar, imagine the embarrassment a 20-year-old Nigerian man goes through because of his swollen genital. A rare disease cause the genital of Sorence Owiti Opiyo to be 10 times the size of an average penis.
The engorged organ is about the size of a baby, reports News.com.au. A rare disease caused a major change in the life of the Nigerian youth who was bullied at school because of his condition that he dropped out.
Unless doctors could find a cure to his ailment, Opiyo risks not having children or finding a wife. The youth from Kisumu County noticed the boil-like swelling between his legs when he was 10 years old which grew over time.
Doctors at the Jaramogi Oginga Hospital in Kisumu, where Opiyo is scheduled to have another surgery, have difficulty containing the swelling. A first surgery failed to curb that swelling that the young man could not wear trousers of shorts since his penis would not fit into the garments.
Some of his treatments have been paid for by Olivia Ranguma, wife of the governor of Kisumu where Opiyo moved with his grandmother when he was orphaned at 10, reports Pink News.
