Guo Feng, 53, says the condition began about 10 years ago when he began to gain weight, but thought nothing of it. But now he says “In the last few years it’s become unbearable and I have been from one hospital to the other with nobody able to help me.”
Doctors say they don’t want to do anything until they can identify the problem, but one thing they do agree on is that his breasts aren’t cancer related and contain only fatty tissue.
He added: “I have spent all my money on examinations and tests and am still no nearer a solution – in fact my breasts are now bigger than ever.”
The ridicule his condition has drawn in his village is so disturbing that he says he plans to cut his breasts off himself if doctors don’t help him.
