Woman With Football-Sized Tumor Recovering After Removal 25-years Later

February 10, 2009

India (ChattahBox) – A woman who has lived for 25 years with a tumor the size of a football on her face has finally had it removed.

Lakhmani Devi began noticing the tumor growing 25 years ago, and doctors in her village refused to remove it.

“The patient was told by doctors in her village that she would die if it was removed so she coped with it for decades,” Dr. K.K. Handa told reporters.

“But she is now eating well and should make a full recovery.”

The tumor had long since effected the woman’s life, making it difficult for her to live normally, and keeping her housebound, all of which has now changed.

“She felt uncomfortable and embarrassed and stopped going out of the house. We can’t thank the doctors enough,” Lallan Singh, her son, said.
