Medical Heartbreak

Cello scrotum is a hoax. Yes, once again the medical community got duped. This is of course good news for Yo Yo Ma.

A top doctor has admitted her part in hoodwinking a leading medical journal after inventing a medical condition called "cello scrotum".

Elaine Murphy - now Baroness Murphy - dreamt up the painful complaint in the 1970s, sending a report to the British Medical Journal.

She came up with the idea after reading about a condition called "guitar nipple".
