Removed a gargantuan tumor from the abdomen of an African patient

Date : June 17, 2019

Doctors at Fortis Hospital, Shalimar Bagh recently removed a gargantuan tumour from the abdomen of a 32-year-old African patient, Mr. Aloyce John Jawe. It was 36 by 40 cm in size and weighed an astounding 24 kilograms! As the tumour grew in the patient over the last few years, it gradually suppressed major organs, causing severe distress. Mr. Jawe had sought help from doctors in his home country of Tanzania, but they were unable to operate a tumour of this size. The case was then presented before Dr. Pradeep Jain, who along with his team, was successful in managing this complex case, which had a high-risk rate, requiring precision and intricate skill.

On presentation, Mr. Aloyce John Jawe was extremely weak. He had a large bulge in his abdomen along with a scar (from a previous surgery which he had undergone in Tanzania).His MRI report confirmed the presence of a large solid cystic tumor in the abdomen. He was re-evaluated at Fortis Hospital Shalimar Bagh, and the MRI, PET and CT scan confirmed the presence of a large intra-abdominal tumour which was pushing the intestines on one side and compressing the ureters (the tube which brings urine from kidney to urinary bladder).
