A private hospital in the city claimed to have removed an extraordinary giant ovarian tumour weighing 33.5 kg, considered to be the heaviest in the world.

The heaviest tumour removal was reported in AIIMS Delhi and another hospital in Puducherry, which weighed 20 kilos, a release from Gateway Clinics, said here on Monday.

The vital organs of the woman, who was originally weighing 42 kg, without the tumour, were all displaced and shrunken due to the huge space occupied by tumour and the abdominal wall was thinned out like a paper due to exponential growth of tumour within the abdomen, the hospital chief, Dr. K Sendhil Kumar, said.

A special team was formed to perform the rare surgery, since the woman hailing from Udhagamandalam in Nilgiris District in Tamil Nadu was not aware that tumour was growing for the last two years without pain, he said.
The main complaints were distension of abdomen, early satiety, tiredness an difficulty in walking due to heavy mass in abdomen although there was no no pain, he said.

Meticulously protecting all the nearby organs, the tumour was separated and retrieved out completely after ligating and suturing the main blood vessels feeding the large tumour, he said.

The patient did not require ICU stay and responded well and recovering well in post operative ward, Dr. Sendhil Kumar added.
