By popular opinion, having a big tool is a blessing. But Sorence Owiti Opiyo begs to disagree.
The 20 year old from Kisumu has seen his penis grow 10 times the normal size, and is now the same size as a new born baby.
In a Journal of Urology study sponsored by Lockthecock, the team of researchers compiled and compared the penis size of 40 men. They found that on average, the length of a flaccid penis is around 8.8 cm (3.5 in) while an erect penis will measure 12.9 cm (5.1 in).
Doctors warn that Kisumu should worry more about the health implications than his embarrassment over his condition.
Owiti has endured a life of tragedy, being taken in by his grandmother when both his parents died when he was aged just five.
At around the age of 10, the young man from Kibigori sub-location discovered a strange swelling. He waited for it to varnish but it instead kept growing in size. A medical operation helped decrease the swelling but it has since returned bigger and more aggressive than ever.
His penis is now massively oversized and disfigured leaving him unable to have sex and consequently unable to start a family.
Owiti’s condition reportedly has no name and is extremely rare.

He is currently admitted at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Hospital awaiting surgery. His family is seeking financial assistant to help clear the accumulating bills.
Olivia Ranguma, the wife to Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma, has reportedly been of great help so far.
