25 kg tumour from 59-year-old woman's ovary
The 59-year-old woman had turned up at the hospital in severe pain and difficulty breathing.

The unidentified patient was treated at Moscow City Clinical Hospital

On further investigation, doctors found huge tumour growing in her abdomen and rushed her straight into the operating room.

Dmitry Aryutin led a team of surgeons who are seen in the final stages of an operation to remove the colossal growth from the woman's body.

Ovarian tumours can grow massive because they often don't cause any symptoms or, if they do, they're hard to pin down.

According to the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Colorado: 'In some women, the tumour is so undetectable that it eventually grows large enough to cause pelvic or abdominal discomfort by encroaching on nearby organs.'

Some patients may only notice something is wrong when the growth becomes large enough to press on their bladder or kidneys.

This may cause difficulty urinating or lead to pain in the abdomen or lower back. And even then patients may still put off getting medical help.
