  • Woman has 132-pound ovarian cyst removed

(G.N.S) DT.04 In a medical case of epic proportions, an ovarian tumour weighing the same as a human adult was removed from the ovary of a 38-year-old woman from Connecticut, US.

Her doctor then referred her case to Dr. Vaagn Andikyan, a gynecologic oncologist, who immediately assembled a team of 25 surgeons, physicians, and clinical specialists to have the massive tumor removed.

The medical team had to take special care removing the tumour, partially because it was sitting on a major blood vessel, and partially because the patient wanted to retain as much of her reproductive system as possible. However, in rare cases, doctors may detect a cancerous cystic ovarian tumor.

The 132-pound ovarian mass is now known as one of the largest ovarian tumors in the world, Tech Times reports.

She diagnosed with a mucinous ovarian tumor, a unique kind of epithelial tumor that is filled with mucous and accounts for 15 percent of all ovarian tumors. The 132-pound tumor was successfully removed after the five-hour surgery.

"When I met the patient, she was extremely malnourished because the tumour was sitting on her digestive tract, and she used a wheelchair because of the tumour's weight". The doctors also had to reconstruct the patient's abdomen, which had become disfigured due to the mass, according to Chuang.

What makes this more interesting is that Tramaglini is the superintendent of a nearby school district, Kenilworth Public Schools. In desperation, they called on police to launch an investigation.

The patient had a "very high risk of developing blood clots because of compression of the blood flow", Chuang said, adding that the woman could not eat or walk.

Evidently, the tumor's growth was rather quick, as the patient experienced a rapid weight gain of about 10 pounds per week since November 2017.

"Her legs were so swollen that she was unable to walk. So cardiology and the anesthesia team was able to adjust intraoperative management to support her heart and lungs to be able to continue with surgery", Andikyan said. "She's back to a normal life, she's back to work, and when I saw her in my office, I saw smiles, I saw hope, and I saw a happy woman who is back to her normal life and her family", Andikyan told CNN.

Andikyan said if the patient waited "another week or two", she might not have survived the surgery. We were all determined to help our patient, even though this was the first time a case like this had come to Danbury Hospital.

It's important to talk to your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms of an ovarian mass: bloating; pelvic or abdominal pain; trouble eating or feeling full quickly; feeling the need to urinate urgently or often.

Most ovarian cysts are benign and go away on their own without treatment.
