DOCTORS in Argentina have removed what they think is the world's largest malignant tumour from the body of a 54-year-old woman.

Weighing a shocking 23kg, the tumour had been growing inside the woman's womb for a year-and-a-half and took four hours to remove, The Daily Mail reported.

Oscar Lopez, surgical coordinator at Gandulfo hospital in Lomas de Zamora, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, said: "I've never seen anything like it in my 34 years of medical service.

Because a picture is worth a thousand, in this case more like ten thousand, words:

This would have been epic if it was placed in the abortion forum. Just from the title alone.
I don't think that's "the world's largest tumor".
I saw this documentary where this lady, had, like... I mean, her whole body was a tumor.
It was like growing out of her back and side, and engulfing her arm, and it was as big as her whole body. Maybe bigger.
All they could do was hack off a little bit of it at a time as it grew, because it was so vascular and cutting too much of it off would make her bleed to death.
It was benign, I think, but it was killing her anyway. Very rare disorder.
Or how about this one?
Fetus in fetu. Basically, a man pregnant with his own twin, whom he cannibalized in the womb.
