A 17 kg tumor of the spine was completely removed by Doctor Ghandehari at Beheshti Hospital (Tehran, Iran).

The tumor, which weighed over 17 kilo grams, had been in the patient’s body for more than 4 years. The patient, a 53 year old man from Tehran, was not willing to accept the risks involved in the surgery, due to the specific location of this tumor.

As a result the mass had gradually increased in size over the past 4 years and had restricted the movement, and control of his lower extremities. The operation was performed successfully and the patient is reported to be recovering well after the surgery. The mass was located outside the spinal cord, as these tumors can grow to large masses before resulting in nerve compression and severe nerve damage.
