New York, Feb 16 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Californian man caused quite a bit of a stir when doctors discovered a huge alien type tumor growing inside his body. What caused the doctors even more concern was that the tumor also had tentacles growing.

Josh Abken was suffering from back pains since a long time. When the pains worsened then he went to the doctors, who prescribed an X-ray. What the X-ray revealed shocked the medical fraternity, to say the least!

“You think you got a serious muscle pull or something, [but] the doctor has that serious doctor face you see on TV. They didn’t really know what was growing inside of me,” according to Josh.

The doctors are puzzled by the weird tumor.”Trying to take out this large … tumor, that’s partially calcified or hard like a rock, created a very difficult surgical experience, several hours of surgery to get it out,” according to thoracic surgeon Costanzo Di Perna.

However the thoracic surgeon breathed a sign of relief when he was able to remove the tumor from Josh’s body. And needless to say, Josh is very happy with the outcome and is hoping that he would now be able to lead a normal life.
