I will post the story in its entirity because you have to register with the La Times to get it from their site.



A team of Romanian and U.S. doctors said they had removed a tumor weighing 175 pounds from a female patient in a 10-hour operation.

Lucica Bunghez, 47, had been largely confined to bed because of the tumor, which weighed almost double the rest of her body and covered her back, waist and hips, doctors said.

"She is very well. The lack of the tumor really suits her," said Ion Lascar, head of the plastic surgery department of Floreasca Hospital in Bucharest. Larger tumors have been removed from other people, with the record topping 300 pounds


Here is the link just in case you want to register.

I saw a Guiness Book of World Record special on the 300 pound tumor. They said that the thing had started to grow hair and teeth as well as other organs.

How could you let it go that long without thinking hey, maybe somethings going on here, lets go see a doctor. Or at least think, "Hey, I probably look horrid walking around with this 18lb tumor on my face, let's get it removed!"

If the 175 was all tumor that's impressive. Alot of people lose 50 or 100 pounds including fluid, just from an 8 or 10 pound tumor (more common that you think).

My Mom was a tiny woman to look at, but had an 8 pound tumor, and lost 50 on the table (fluid). It's really hard to tell you have one until it's like sticking out. The fluid makes you gain all over, so it's not like being pregnant and sticking out.

I realize if you're still young gaining 50 or 100 pounds and thinking it's normal seems impossible to you right now....

Just wait.
Mwwwah ha ha ha.

Since we are on topic of strange things to do with the human body

I bet this guy has a splitting headache.



The largest object removed from a human skull is a 20.32-cm (8-inch) survival knife, which was plunged into the head of 41-year-old Michael Hill on April 25, 1998. Michael survived the ordeal and the next day astonished doctors by functioning normally, although it was soon clear the knife had caused permanent damage to his memory and paralyzed his left hand. Looking back on the nightmare, the father-of-one says, "I didn't feel the pain initially and it was only when I was at the hospital that it hit me and I felt like my eyes were bulging out. I know people in worse shape than me now and so I consider myself lucky."
