Indian doctors remove giant tumour from woman

NEW DELHI (AFP) - An Indian woman is in a stable condition in a hospital in the northern state Haryana after doctors removed a tumour larger than the size of a football from her ovary on Monday, a medical officer said. The tumour, weighing 22kg, was removed from Suresha Singh's ovary during a three-hour operation at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Rohtak, 70km from New Delhi. Head doctor Savita Rani Singhal said the 45-year-old patient had been living with the non-cancerous tumour for six years because her husband had told her she would die if she had it operated on. 'It was made of solid tissue and was the largest I have come across in all the medical books or journals,' Dr Singhal told AFP.
