Somehow this story is actually true and in a way I wish it wasn’t. A father who lost his penis to a blood infection has now become the first man in the world to have a new one built on his arm. His name Malcom MacDonald and he’s 45 years old and his new penis has had some surgical delays so he’s been forced to live with it on his arm for four years.
Malcolm who is a mechanic is waiting for his £50,000 NHS-funded appendage to transfer his new penis from his arm to where it belongs (between his legs). However, just like the rest of us he can see the funny side of things. In an interview with the Sun he said:
He said: “Of course it is mad – having a penis on your arm.Not even I am used to it. But when you think about it, it’s actually amazing.That they can make me a new penis at all is incredible – but that they can build it on my arm is mind-blowing. It looks like something out of a weird sci-fi comic. But it’s my chance at a normal life.It’s been the first step towards being able to go to the toilet and even being intimate with someone.”
Malcolm was left in shock when a long-term perineum infection spread to his fingers, toes and penis, and hence turned them black. And he was left “completely gutted” when it fell off one horrid day in 2014, though his balls remained intact
