Indian Woman Has Her 97-kg Tumour Removed
An Indian woman had an incredible 97-kg tumour removed from her abdomen after five years of agony.

Devi Kamlesh, from Meerut, in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, coped with the massive growth for so long because her husband said the family were too poor for her to see a doctor.

The 45-year-old said she followed her husband’s wishes even though the pain was unbearable.

But after his death six months ago she decided to finally see a doctors about the tumour - which weighed as much as a newborn elephant.

Dr. A S Jaggi, at Lokpriya Hospital, Meerut, agreed to operate on Ms Kamlesh without charge as part of a scheme which helped impoverished people access healthcare.

The operation lasted three hours and the tumour was finally removed from her right ovary.

Doctors were shocked after they put the huge growth on the scales and discovered it weighed 213lb (97kg) - meaning Ms Kamlesh was carrying around the equivalent of 28 average-weight newborn babies.

Dr. Jaggi, 60, said: ‘She was in severe pain when she came to the hospital.

'The tumour had started leaking and it would have killed her if there was any further delay.

‘Three units of blood were infused during the surgery and then the patient was kept in intensive care for a day.'

He added Ms Kamlesh is recovering well and they have sent the tumour to a lab to be analysed.

Dr Jaggi, who has been a doctor for more than 25 years, said he was amazed to see a tumour.

He said: ‘I’ve never seen such a tumor in my whole career. Ovarian tumors are common but never this big.

'It must be three feet in length and two feet in width, it's huge. The tumor has now has been sent to a pathology lab for tests.’

The hospital has also contacted India’s Limca Book of Records to see if the tumour should be recognised in the records books.

Earlier this month, Mail Online reported on the story of a Chinese man who lived with a tumour so big he looked heavily pregnant for a decade.

The 33-year-old said he let the mass increase for 10 years as he believed it could be treated with traditional remedies.

Eventually it had grown so huge it weighed 2st 5lbs (33lbs or 15kg) - and made him appear as though he was expecting a child.
