Australian man with giant scrotum seeks surgery in US, (video)

A Melbourne surgeon has offered to help a Queensland man who feared having to spend $100,000 for life-saving surgery in the United States to stop his scrotum from swelling to the size of a watermelon.

Willowbank resident Tyrone Bowd, 24, was diagnosed with scrotal lymphoedema 12 months ago, a rare condition that made his scrotum swell to his knees.

Dr Ramin Shayan, a Melbourne-based reconstructive plastic surgeon, after reading of Mr Bowd’s plight said he would be able to complete the surgery in public hospital at no cost.
