The ideal testicle, which we are clearly not talking about here, should measure about 4 cm
long and 2 cm broad. Victims of elephantiasis, a disease caused by the obstruction of
lymph vessels due to parasitic filarial worms, may find their gonads swelling to the size
of a watermelon and beyond. The largest on record is an African whose scrotum weighed 154
lbs. and measured almost 2 ft. in diameter. Fortunately, an available drug called
diethylcarbamazine is effective in killing the worm larvae and reducing the swelling.

The book, Human Oddities by Martin Monestier, thoughtfully encloses a topless photo of a
woman with 44-pound breasts measuring 33 inches in circumference.
Extra breasts (or nipples, for that matter) is called polymastia. In 1886, one Professor
Neugenbauer presented to the French Academy of Medicine a woman with ten individual
lactating breasts. Three months later, Dr. P. J. Stoyanoff exhibited a 23-year-old Polish
woman who also had eight additional hooters, all of which secreted milk.
