An India man, Shadot Hossain, suffering from a genetic condition has hundreds of bubble-like lumps covering his entire body.

Hossain is believed to be suffering from neurofibromatosis – which cause non-cancerous lumps to crop up.

Hossain risks permanently losing his vision if an operation to slice away the growths is not performed on time.

The 47-year old has his entire body covered with the tumours to the extent that he cannot wear clothing on his top half and struggles to feed himself.

Even his own 12-year-old son, Abdullah, shies away from looking at him.

The father-of-three, who lives in Shajadpur, Bangladesh, said: ‘It is very difficult to live with pain like this. ‘I also suffer a lot with itching on the body and the neck. My body feels heavy.’ ‘The moment anyone sees me they try to move away from me. The kids when they see me they just freak out and start running.’
