==Tumor==
Removed unsourced speculation about Genghis Khan having an adrenal tumor. Such tumors are very rare and malignant in at least half of cases, and not necessary to explain his accomplishments. See this study for details: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14668717 Makes the lede too long in any case.

== The observation that Genghis possibly could not have had a tumor is speculation as well. Rarity does not mean impossibility, and helpful tumors are common enough for their to be a whole list of notable people, that have them ==
 
This is for acromegaly, onset of gigantism in adulthood vs childhood. Much better life outcome. Common among pro boxers and wrestlers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acromegaly#Notable_people
 
Still on the adrenal tumor page there is no notable people, maybe because the appearance changes are not as drastic?

A speculation section would be cool. The man's life was pretty abnormal to say the least.
