AIIMS doctors successfully remove one of the largest tumour in young female
Rishikesh: A patient detected with an advanced stage of the malignant ovarian tumour has been saved by the efforts of the doctors of AIIMS Rishikesh after they removed a 41kg tumour from her body. It was a case of an advanced stage of Mucinous cystadenocarcinoma and the doctors informed that the tumour was the largest of its kind. It is a rare case where the patient survived such a complex surgery and the tumor was more than half of her body weight (60%).
The patient was identified as an unmarried female who was 24 years old and she approached the doctors of the institution with a huge abdominal mass. She was suffering from gross abdominal distention and pain which was progressively increasing over the last 5-6 years. The patient was unable to walk or even stand and completely bedridden for the last one year. She tried to consult with other facilities previously but with such a huge mass it was difficult to treat the patient and finally, the patient was presented to AIIMS Rishikesh.
