Man With Two Penises !
Man seeks surgery to remove extra organ
New Delhi: An Indian businessman born with two penises wants one of them removed surgically as he wants to marry and lead a normal sexual life, a newspaper report said yesterday.
The 24-year-old man from Uttar Pradesh admitted himself to a New Delhi hospital last week with an extremely rare medical condition called penile duplication or diphallus, the Times of India said. "Two fully functional penises is unheard of even in medical literature. In the more common form of diphallus, one organ is rudimentary," the paper quoted a surgeon as saying.
The surgery was expected to be challenging as both organs were well-formed and full blood supply to the retained penis had to be ensured to allow it to function normally, he added.
The newspaper did not disclose the identity of the man or the hospital to protect the patient's privacy.
