Man Has Suffered From Severely Swollen Penis For 17 YEARS Due To Silent Infection… Current Trends

A man who suffered in silence with very embarrassing symptoms has finally been cured after a shock diagnosis.

The 72-year-old lived for 17 years with a severely swollen penis that made the organ appear partially erect at all times, as well as a swollen scrotum and left leg.

The anonymous patient was found to be infected with hordes of live microscopic worms that were causing chronic inflammation around his groin.

He lived in Switzerland but left Zimbabwe 20 years earlier, where infection is more common.
