The 300 lb tumor - with picture

It's a biggun!

Old news, but still ....300 lbs !

Quote:
Largest Tumor Removed Intact
The largest tumor ever removed intact was a multicystic mass of the right ovary weighing 137.6 kg (303 lb). The operation, which took over six hours, was performed by Professor Katherine O'Hanlan of Stanford University Medical Center, California, USA. The growth had a diameter of 1 m (3 ft) and was removed in its entirety in October 1991 from the abdomen of an unnamed 34-year-old woman. The patient who weighed 95 kg (210 lb) after the operation and has made a full recovery left the operating theater on one stretcher and the cyst left on another.

What's malignant is not telling how on earth they would let something go that long. Wouldn't you start to get a bit concerned by about, oh, 200 pounds or so?

If not this case, then a similar one... I read that the woman was afraid to leave her house and therefore couldn't bring herself to get diagnosed.

As for the beanbag chair comment, anybody know what the texture of something like this is? Soft? Hard? Spongey?

I saw a documentary on a simliar case - possibly the same one. The woman was severely agoraphobic, so it took her a long time to seek treatment. The image that has stayed with me, however, was a shot of a nurse walking out of the operating room using both arms to hold a big plastic tub. What was the tub holding, you ask? Well, I'll tell you - it was filled with a few dozen pounds of excess skin that had to be removed.

I saw a medical show on a giant tumor. That particular woman's problem was that the thing grew very quickly and had major blood vessels in it. She bled out the equivalent of three times I think they said. They couldn't keep up with the blood loss. It finally got to the point where they had to operate because the tumor was literally sucking the life out of her. There's a lot going on under the surface.

But jesus. Eeeew-o-meter is off the charts.

Find the right filler material, and that thing would make a hell of a lot of dog food.

Before or after you break the cysts?

If it's anything like a liposarcoma, it's firm with a slight give to it. Kind of like a well-stuffed leather ball.

But really, when the tumor gets larger than the person carrying it, shouldn't the operation be called a humanectomy?

Yeah, I thought the picture would be of something nice to counter the effect of the OP subject matter.

You know, this may be one of the first steps toward developing vat-grown meat.

Wasn't the 300 lb tumor a teratoma -- a nonmalignant mass noted for contaning bits of various body tissues, including hair and teeth?

That was incredible. She was skeletal except for the big mass, because it was taking all the nutrients. After the operation she was restored to a plump woman who looked nothing like her pre-op self. Even during the operation they had to be really careful about moving her and The Tuma because of the weight, blood vessels, etc.

Same with the one on that special "Things Removed from Human Bodies" where they had the guy who had in-utero "swallowed" his twin, which kept growing.

Well I was going to post a comment on how that mass just looked like an oversized roast turkey, but as usual it's all been done already. Nothing to see here.

You and me both, kid. I still have the screaming meemies over reading that bit of Stephen King's book, I think it might have been _The Dark Half_, with THAT scene in it in the OR. Screaming meemies. That was, what, nearly 15 years ago.

Shutthefuckup. Can I purchase a copy of this episode? How could I have missed this? I'm usually telepathically drawn to the human oddity.

Nonetheless. A little warning next time. On this board, titles don't mean that much. I have friends who refer to their wives as "160 pound tumors."

Just not in hearing range of them.

Yeah the tumor had a person removed. Was the tumor's family notified?

Sorry to disappoint; the spoiler was in reference to The Dark Half. But, there's hope: TLC has shown the special at least twice. Look for "Things Removed from the Human Body" right after "Born with Two Heads" and "Born without a Face". No, seriously.

Damn. I've seen the other ones, but missed The Best One Evah. I'll have to keep an eye peeled (pun absolutely intended).
