KUALA NERANG – A 71-year-old from Kampung Masjid Lama here has been suffering from a mysterious disease which caused his testicles to grow to the size of coconuts.
Abdullah Yunus said his testicles became bigger after he had a high fever 30 years ago and his numerous efforts to cure his predicament have so far failed.
“I had the illness after a high fever. My testicles felt itchy and turned red. After three months, I had difficulty walking and had to go to the Alor Setar Hospital. The doctor told me to go to the Penang Hospital for surgery,” he said when met here on Tuesday (Nov 7).
Economic realities and the lack of a suitable transportation forced the father of three to cancel the operation.
He and his son Ishak are appealing to the public for donations.
