Holy hell, this is a nightmare.
We’ve all heard of brutal penis injuries, but this one right here is tough to hear. An unnamed man in Taiwan had an erection that lasted for an entire week, an experience that the man reveals made him feel like his penis was “about to explode.” Well, that didn’t happen, but unfortunately this poor dude had to lose his penis.

The man finally decided to go to the hospital where doctors diagnosed him with an aggressive cancer. Doctors told the man tumors blocking the blood vessels in his penis caused him to be in a permanent state of arousal. Apparently the man was aware of the potential for this type of cancer three years ago.
At first the docs try to avoid amputation of the penis by cutting into it (welp) and reliving pressure, but when that didn’t work the man finally accepted his fate and let them take his penis.
The man is recovering from surgery and will start chemo treatment soon. No word yet if the dude will be able to have sex again. But hey, at least he’s still alive. That’s something.
