40-kg tumour removed from Tripura woman’s bodyFebruary 3rd, 2010 - 3:55 pm ICT by IANS
Agartala, Feb 3 (IANS) A bulky 40-kg tumour was removed from the ovary of a 55-year-old woman by doctors in a government hospital in Tripura who said this was “not a rare case” in India.
The doctors removed the large sized tumour from Nilapati Debbarma’s body Tuesday in a two-hour long operation in Udaipur district hospital in south Tripura, 55-km south of here.
“The poor tribal woman has been carrying the ovarian tumour for the past two years. She was admitted to the district hospital two days back,” renowned gynaecologist Salilbindu Chakraborty told IANS.
Chakraborty led the team of doctors who operated on the tribal woman.
“Though removal of such type of large-sized tumour from a human body is not a rare case in India, it is very risky job,” Chakraborty said.
