Woman Regains Her Face After Having Tumour As Big As The Size Of A Football Removed From Her Jaw

A woman has regained her face after having A big Tumour removed from her jaw. Lalao didn't regard the small bump that appeared on her right cheek more than a decade ago as something serious. Yet, over the course of several years, the bump swelled in size - resembling a large bag of marbles. Eventually, the mass grew to weigh 11 pounds - and the sheer size of it prevented the school teacher from turning her head. Over time, the tumor grew bigger and bigger - to the extent that she had to wrap a scarf around it to hide it.

The mother of four, from Madagascar, sought help from local doctors - and was told there was nothing they could do for her. In desperation, the now 50-year-old waited in line for eight hours to ask a team of experts if surgeons on board Mercy Ships - a charity hospital ship - could remove the mass.

She was admitted on to the vessel in November 2015 after it docked in Toamasina - and two days later, her tumor was removed in one operation. "The next morning, I just woke and it was gone. Finally, l was free of that big mass," she said.

Lalao's husband, Alfred, said: "I was so happy when she came back from the operating room that I cried. It was amazing that they could remove the growth in one surgery." 

And now, months later, Lalao is feeling happy and healthy - and looking forward to getting her life back on track, DailyMail reports.
