Doctors of the Moscow Regional Oncological Dispensary operated on a 64-year-old patient who for a long time did not suspect about a giant tumor. She was identified as a malignant neoplasm, the operation lasted several hours. According to doctors, such surgical interventions are often practiced in this dispensary, however, this case is considered rare due to the size of the lesion.
This medical institution specializes in operations to remove tumors, but this time it was just gigantic and filled almost the entire abdominal cavity, from the diaphragm to the pelvis. The head physician of the institution, Vladimir Astashov, said that the tumor was excessively large, but metastases from it did not form. Doctors removed the tumor surgically.
