A Battle Creek man is hoping the public will help him pay for surgery to correct an embarrassing problem. Dan Maurer's condition was misdiagnosed for years. His scrotum has gotten so big, it's difficult for the 39-year old to walk.

Dan suffers from a broken cyst inside his scrotum. It's a condition known as scrotal lymphedema. It's extremely rare, and the surgery to correct the problem is dangerous and expensive. If he can raise the money for the procedure, it will have to be performed by a surgeon in California.

The Mauers have set up a crowd-funding page, in order to solicit funds to help pay for his surgery. Go to www.GoFundMe.com and search for Dan Mauer. More information on Dan and his struggle is in the video below from Grand Rapids TV station WZZM.
