The Yorkshire ripper has expressed concern he may have cancer after his ‘swollen’ testicle reached five times its normal size.
Peter Sutcliffe, 72, who is currently serving a life sentence for murdering 13 women and attempting to murder another seven, is reportedly in agony as a result.
The killer, who is currently serving time at Durham’s Frankland Prison, noticed his testicles increasing in size after he returned to prison from hospital – following treatment for a bladder infection.

He said: ‘It’s massive. I hope it’s not cancer. It’s this big weird shape,’ reports The Sun.
A source also told the website that his testicle was so swollen it was ‘keeping him awake at night’.
To make matters worse, the killer is now also completely blind after a failed attempt to undo damage to his eyesight caused by diabetes.
In March it was announced the 71-year-old killer has to have a buddy wheel him around Frankland Prison in County Durham, where he has been moaning about being unable to watch TV.

An injection to clear the blurriness in his right eye went horribly wrong, with the murderer telling a friend ‘they have f***** up my eyesight’.

Sutcliffe murdered 13 women in the UK and attempted to murder seven others.
The former Bradford lorry driver attacked and murdered women between 1976 and 1981 using knives, hammers and screwdrivers.
Most of his victims were women working as prostitutes.
But last year he confessed on tape to a savage attack on a 14-year-old schoolgirl because he wrongly thought she was a prostitute.
Sutcliffe admitted hitting Tracy Browne with a branch before throwing her over a wall.
Despite having suffered two fractures to her skull Tracy managed to stagger to a farmworker’s caravan and he raised the alarm.
