Teen Has World's First Penis Reduction Surgery In Order To Have Sex

| by Michael Allen

An unidentified 17-year-old boy recently had the world's first penis reduction surgery because the organ interfered with him having sex, playing sports and wearing pants.

The boy's penis was reportedly 7 inches long and 10 inches wide when flaccid. Due to his sickle cell condition, the teen also suffered from incidents of priapism, which is an unwanted erection that stays for a long period of time, reports Medical Daily.

"There comes a time in every urologist's career that a patient makes a request so rare and impossible to comprehend that all training breaks down and leaves the physician speechless. That question was, 'Can you make my penis smaller?'" Dr. Rafael Carrion, a urologist at the University of South Florida, told the Daily Mail.

"His penis had inflated like a balloon," added Dr. Carrion. "It sounds like a man's dream, a tremendously inflated phallus, but unfortunately although it was a generous length, it's girth was just massive, especially around the middle. It looked like an American football."

The Daily Mirror tweeted a picture of the boy's X-ray.

Dr. Carrion and his team employed a surgery normally used on a medical condition in which scar tissue develops on the organ and causes it to bend abnormally.

After two days in a hospital, the happy teen returned home. Doctors would not say how big his penis is now, but described it as "generous."
