The Sex Clinic viewers shocked as man screams in pain while he has a lance burned off his penis

VIEWERS of E4's The Sex Clinic screamed along in pain with a man who had a lance burned off his penis.

Italian stallion Marco went on E4's The Sex Clinic to have his worrying lump removed and ended up screaming as he has his genital wart frozen with liquid nitrogen.

The 30-year-old went to see the show's medics are finding the lump under his foreskin, in the episode which aired for a second time after first premiering last year.

Dr Sarah Mulindwa diagnosed it as a genital wart - a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) passed on through sex.

She told him she could freeze the painless growth, a method known as cryotherapy.

It involves applying liquid nitrogen - a very cold substance - with a swab or spray to the wart.

This treatment has to be repeated every week for four weeks to shrink it before it can be pulled off.

The procedure itself doesn't take much time but it can be painful and cause soreness for a few days afterwards.

Marco confirmed the procedure was painful as he screamed in agony and warned people off unprotected sex.

"F***. It's like somebody stabbing me on my d***," he said to the doctor.

"Can I have sex tomorrow?"

Dr Sara replied: "What we normally say is to avoid sex altogether.

"The wart is on your penis, so avoid putting your wart near anybody."

Marco can be seen braving the freezing blast on the programme as Dr Mulindwa removes his unsightly wart.

Screaming as she applies the cold swap, he says: "This is a torture. I'm crying.

"Don't do unprotected sex guys - that's what happens."

He also admitted to Dr Mulindwa that he had been having sex with women without wearing a condom.

Genital warts are typically passed on through skin-to-skin contact during sex.

The best way to stop the spread is to use protection when getting intimate.

Dr Mulindwa banned him from both oral and penetrative sex for at least two weeks to stop the STI spreading any further.

Viewers of The Sex Clinic reacted with shock as they watched the dramatic procedure.

“'Hi Marco, how has your week been?' 'Yeah, not too bad, I went on TV and let them freeze a genital wart off of my helmet'. What?!," wrote one Twitter user.

Another added: "Marco is making me cringe".

And a third said: "Just get your penis ready for me. Cue scream."
