In 2008, Wesley Warren Jr. suffered an injury on his right testicle that resulted in scrotal lymphedema which caused his scrotum to swell to more than 100 pounds. He told HuffPost that his scrotum grew 3 pounds or more each month. Warren was profiled in the TLC special, The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum.
In 2013, Warren underwent a testicle removal surgery, which left him 200 pounds lighter. One year later, Warren died at a Las Vegas hospital. He was 49 years old. His roommate, Joey Hurtado, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Warren was in the hospital for five and a half weeks. Hurtado said he didn’t believe the testicle removal surgery was a factor in the death. He was in the hospital for infections which “I think were brought on by his diabetes and then he had those heart attacks.” TLC is reairing The Man With the 132-lb. Scrotum on October 5 at 8pm.
