Woman gives birth to gigantic tumour

The mucinous ovarian mass weighed 60kg — but it's not the biggest

A 60kg ovarian tumour has been successfully removed from a 38-year-old woman, US doctors report.

A team of 12 surgeons were involved in the five-hour resection of the benign mass.

The patient first came to the attention of doctors in November when she reported that the tumour was growing at a rate of about 4.5kg a month.
