Doctors remove 16-kilogram tumour from woman’s abdomen

Doctors in India removed a 16 kilogram tumour from the abdomen of a 20-year-old woman after performing a 6-hour-long surgery on Sunday.

The officials at the Bhopal hospital said it was an ovarian tumour and the surgery was performed successfully.

The condition of the woman is said to be stable.

“Two days back, she came from Rajgarh and her tumour was very large. She was having problems while eating and walking,” Mr Chandolia told ANI.

“This tumour is known as an ovarian tumour.”

“The woman’s weight was 48 kilogram and the weight of the tumour was 16 kg.”

“Chances of her survival would have diminished had it not been removed in time.”

“The surgery went on for around six hours.”

“She is out of danger.”
