(FOX6NOW) -- A surgeon in India has removed a 1.873-kilogram (4.1-pound) tumor from a 31-year-old man at a government hospital in Mumbai, India.
Dr. Trimurti Nadkarni, the surgeon who conducted the operation at BYL Nair Charitable Hospital, described the tumor as the “largest in the world” based on comparative studies conducted by his team. CNN has not been able to independently verify those claims.
He added that the surgery, which took place February 14, was life-threatening and tricky, as the tumor was embedded inside the brain.
