A MAN WHO lived for several years with a 10 stone scrotum has sealed a deal with TV network TLC for a special show about living with his condition.

Wesley Warren Jr lives in Las Vegas and suffers from a rare condition called scrotal lymphedema.

Channel 4 aired a show about Warren Jr earlier this year, which led to #10StoneTesticles trending worldwide on Twitter.

Entertainment Weekly reports that TLS will air a special called The Man With the 132 lb Scrotum on 19 August.

His condition first became apparent in 2008 when he began to experience pain in his testicles, which then began to grow at a rate of around 3lbs a month.

In a video clip posted by TLC, Warren Jr compared the weight to carrying around a large sack of potatoes.

He said he went to doctor after doctor in an effort to secure a diagnosis, and said he relied on home health care to help him with everyday tasks.

He was forced to wear a oversized hoodie instead of trousers in an effort to cover himself when he’s out in public.

This year Warren Jr underwent a 13 hour surgery to reduce the size of his scrotum, but was reported to be unhappy after the procedure left him with a penis 3cm in length.
