Presuming the growing swelling on his neck to be a harmless case of goitre, 55-year-old Somai -- a farmer from Basti in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh -- ignored it for the past 20 odd years. But when the lump started swelling to a monstrous proportion, and he was unable to bear the discomfort and pain, Somai approached doctors at King George's Medical University Hospital at Lucknow, the state's capital, 205 kms away.

"The patient visited our out patients' department on July 12, and we admitted him. After going through the scan reports, we decided to remove the growth at the earliest, and the surgery was conducted the next day on July 13," informed Dr. Onkar Vedak who was part of the surgical team.

The surgery was conducted by chief surgeon Dr. Sunil Kumar, and assisted by Dr. Onkar Vedak, Dr. Priyanka Shrivastava, Dr. Krishna Choubey, Dr. Ampu Hage and anesthetist Dr. Ehsan Siddique.

"The surgery was quite challenging and took about three and a half hours. It was sub-mandibular tumour and was pressing hard on the carotid arteries which are major blood vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain, neck and face," said Dr. Onkar. 

The sub-mandibular glands are smaller and are below the jaw. They secrete saliva under the tongue.

"If the tumourous nodules were small, it would have been easy to operate. But, Somai was carrying a massive lump. After operation, the weight of the tumour was found to be 1.4 kilograms, which is quite rare," said he. 



"The patient is recuperating post-surgery, and will be discharged after his stitches are removed," he added.

  2. A few weeks ago, someone noticed how attached we are to our rats, wondering how we could go through the heartbreak of loving animals with such a short lifespan. I didn’t know how to answer as we haven’t yet gone through the experience.
