A woman had a 8rea$t-sized tumour removed from her back which had been growing for more than a decade.

A woman had a 19cm tumour removed from her back which had been growing for more than a decade

The woman said it had been growing for 10 years, but had starting growing rapidly in the last three. Upon measuring the tumour, doctors found it was 19cm in length and 6.7cm wide. Suspecting it may be a soft tissue cancer known as a sarcoma, doctors immediately carried out an MRI scan. They found the growth was a benign tumour made up of fat cells, known as a lipoma. Co-author of the report, Dr Tunde Abdulsalam, who practices in Dublin, told MailOnline this was one of the biggest lipomas he had ever seen. He said: ‘It is unusual to let it grow that big. Most patients would have it removed sooner for cosmetic reasons.
