However, given the possibility of having the surgery - even at no cost - the 47 year old, remains reluctant to undergo surgery, the news media reported.
In any case, Warren’s new found fame could have gone to his head and seems to be enjoying his celebrity status.
"I will make a decision when I’M ready," said Warren.
Warren has appeared on the Howard Stern Show, Comedy Central and will be appearing for a documentary on The Learning Channel.
A producer with "The Dr. Oz Show," said he would find a surgeon to perform the procedure free of charge, as long as he shared his journey with the program.
Warren would not commit to just one show, and later told the news media that he was also concerned physicians selected by him might maul him or kill him during surgery.
Another doctor at the University of California at Irvine, has been in contact with Warren, and is also offering his services for free as long as Nevada Medicaid pays for the room.
The doctors said that Warren suffers from lymphedema scrotal, which causes the scrotum to swell with aqueous liquid.
Without the growth, Warren would weigh about 300 pounds, he said. Its large size makes urination difficult and impossible for a normal sex life.
He attributes his condition to a painful episode in 2008 when he turned in bed and crushing the testicles. "It was like a sharp pain through my body," he said. "When it stopped, it was like a huge truck and trailer went off the top of me."
Warren fears of complications during surgery are not unfounded, reportedly because doctors say there is potential for serious bleeding.
However, Warren scoffs at the idea that he is more interested in fame to cure his condition: "Who would want to live like this" he said. "I do not want to die during the operation either."
