HYDERABAD: Doctors at a corporate hospital in Hyderabad saved the life of a 5-year-old girl by removing a 5 kg tumour from the kidney. 

The girl, Faduma, hails from Somalia. Doctors diagnosed her conditions as ‘Wilm’s Tumor’, a very rare type of kidney cancer which leads to the abdomen being fully bloated. In this instance, the tumour removed from the girl’s kidney measured around 30x30 x30 cm.

Due to her condition, the girl was emaciated and very weak. A team of oncologists treated her with chemotherapy followed by an 8-hour long surgery. 

Senior oncologist Dr Sachin Marda said that the girl was critical when she was brought to the hospital.
