25kg swollen mass removed from MP man's thigh

Press Trust of India  |  Indore (MP) 

A 20-year-old man, bedridden since the past couple of years, will now be able to walk again after undergoing surgery for the removal of a 25-kg swollen mass that had been hanging from his thigh.

Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital (MYH) surgeon Sonia Moses told PTI that a team of doctors removed the swollen mass from the thigh of Bharat (20), a resident of Jhabua district, after an operation that lasted for two hours Friday.

She said the lump started developing about two years ago and it grew up to weight 25 kg, while the weight of the man reduced to 30 kg.

This had made him difficult to walk and left him bedridden, Moses said.

After the surgery, a portion of the swollen mass was sent for autopsy to ascertain the reason behind its appearance and growth, the doctor added.
