Doctors in Argentina have removed the world's largest tumour weighing almost 4 stone from a patient.

The massive growth was removed from a woman's womb during an operation that lasted four hours, it was the equivalent of the weight of a four-year-old boy and had been there for over 18 months.

"Doctors have removed a tumour weighing nearly four stone from a woman in Argentina."

Maybe she thought she was pregnant? if that was the case, I would've went to the doctor immediately to find out if there is something inside of me, but 18 months? that's far too long.

She has had cancer long enough for her to grow this tumor. But I think having the surgery will kill her. She was able to handle the cancer alone, probably for a long time. And now most likely the chemo and surgery will kill her. It looks like the tumor was encapsulated. We should question and know if it has spread to the lymph system. Sometimes you can live with the cancer without doing anything for it. Sometimes the remedy to cancer kills you before the cancer would and does. Immunotherapy is indeed the future of cancer treatment, teaching your own body to naturally deal with the cancer. And ... [More]

Considering how big that tumor was and how fast it was growing, I don't think it would have been too long before its energy consumption would have literally starved the woman to death, if it didn't kill her by crushing her organs first. She obviously wasn't drinking her green tea!! Good point. But it wasn't that rapid in growth. It was noted perhaps at first at a year and a half previously. Which means that it was longer than 1.5 years. And crushing the organs? Maybe. Maybe not. They didn't mention where it was. They didn't say where it's origins began, never mentioned the specific cancer cell... [More]

Almost all the people suffering from cancer that I have known who underwent chemo eventually died of complications due to the chemo.
