If you thought reports of a man with a half-meter long penis were stretching the truth, you're right — literally right.

Roberto Esquivel Cabrera of Saltillo, Mexico laid claim to the world's largest wang in 2015 when a NSFW YouTube video featuring his alleged 18.9 inch (48 centimeter) phallus went viral. But looks can be deceiving, according to radiologist Jesus Pablo Gilmore, who recently performed a revealing scan on the penis in question.

"The CT scan showed that there's a very large foreskin, it goes almost to the knee," Dr. Gilmore told Barcroft TV. "The penis itself is just about 16 to 18 centimeters [6.2 to 7 inches] from the pubis. So, it doesn't go all the way through the foreskin....The rest of the tissue found there is just foreskin, blood vessels, and some inflammation of the skin."  

So if the doctor's report is correct, then Cabrera actually has the world's longest foreskin and the worst case of penile inflammation on earth.

And that makes a lot of sense when you consider how Cabrera went about lengthening his member, according to his former psychiatrist, who says Cabrera began trying to lengthen his penis as a teenager by attaching bands and weights to it. 

So long story short, Cabrera isn't a grower or a shower. He's a stretcher, according to penis sceptics.
