COMPASSIONATE Sun readers have rallied to support a man blighted with SEVEN STONE testicles. Messages of help have flooded in for American Wesley Warren Jr who is suffering with an enormous growth on his scrotum.
The 47-year-old needs $1million for a life-changing operation to have the embarrassing deformity removed.
Wesley's medical insurance would not cover the surgery bills so he was forced to go on the radio show of US shock jock Howard Stern to beg for help.
His extraordinary tale touched our readers – some of whom have said they would like to help. After his plight was revealed on Tuesday reader Britain4ever said: "Poor guy, you would think that someone who had enough money to help him out. A million dollars to some people is like 2p on the street."
While Mikkasmitta commented: "Jesus Christ, I'll stick a quid in if 999,999 others do. As a man I just can't bare to think of how horrible his life is with that dangling off of him!"
Blogger Bringingmedown said: "Oh bless him, where can I donate?"
Helencyprus said: "Poor guy, that must be really painful."
Ordinarybrit1961 said: "This is a medical emergency. There must be some help surely. Poor bloke"
Christine Leslie said: "What gets me is that the medical people let the guy suffer like this. You wouldn't let an animal suffer in this way would you? To be ridiculed and teased in the street and not have a normal life, medical costs should be nothing for this poor soul."

Wesley, from Las Vegas, believes he was struck down by the embarrassing deformity when he squashed his privates while asleep in 2008 which led them to start swelling.
Doctors told him he was suffering from scrotal lymphedema — a condition that has made his lymph nodes in his scrotum swell up with watery fluid.
But Brave Wesley has refused to let his unfortunate condition get him down, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He said: "I don't like being a freak, who would?"
"I really would like to have a relationship with a woman. I should be in the prime of my life right now."
"I want to have real friends. But I'm not suicidal. I'm too strong for that."
His testicles have grown so large that he cannot wear jeans or trousers anymore and lives on a diet of antibiotics and medications.
Instead Wesley, from Las Vegas, US, has to wear a hoodie - placing his legs in the arms and using the hood to support the growth.
Surgeons said Wesley - who is 6ft tall and weighed 21stone before the growth took hold - would need a seven-figure operation to correct the problem.
