A 50 years old Thai, advised by his friends, injected olive oil into the penis, with the goal of making it bigger. All this ended in an infection that doctors were only able to respond amputating his member.
This practice is very common in the Asian country, which is why the Ministry of Health had to warn society, acknowledging the latter case.
Although the result was not “guaranteed”, the man was influenced by friends, who assured him that with this system he would get a bigger penis. The practice, which can also involve the use of silicone, paraffin wax or even beeswax is common in Thailand. A hospital in Baguecoque states that 40 patients have received treatment in one month because of side effects caused by practicing this method.
In this case the man of 50 years developed a severe infection after injecting olive oil into the penis for several years. The infection became cancerous and there was nothing else to do than to “nip it in the bud”, ie, amputate his sexual organ.
