Posted in

This Vietnamese girl is finally free of a disfiguring 16-pound (7-kilogram) facial tumor, after a surgery that lasted at least 12 hours.

They called it as a Schwannoma tumor, it consumed the lower half of 15-year-old Lai Thi Dao's face. It had been growing since she was 3 and eventually accounted for roughly one-third of her body weight.

Doctors at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center tell The Miami Herald that Lai's tumor was one of the largest ever reported.
This is great news that the operation was successful.
