New Delhi: Doctors at a hospital in Mumbai have removed the world’s heaviest kidney tumour reportedly weighing 5.5 kg, which has fetched them a new world record.
A team of doctors successfully operated on Manju Devi, a 28-year-old woman from Bihar’s Darbhanga district, who complained of an ‘abdominal lump’.
As per reports, the 5.5kg tumour was 50 times heavier than a healthy kidney, which weighs about 110 to 140 grams.
Because of the 31cm wide and 19cm long tumour, the woman had been suffering from immense pain for the last three years.
A CT scan was conducted that revealed the enormous tumour, that had completely replaced the right kidney.
The woman’s quality of life was compromised as she struggled to carry on with her daily activities.
The Guinness Book of World Records recently confirmed their feat.
