See The Huge Thing Doctors Removed From A Teenage Girl’s Stomach.

A teenage girl has undergone life-saving surgery to remove a cyst from her ovary – which weighed as much as a five-year-old. Khalida Akhter, 18, suffered from chronic stomach pain before the emergency procedure to remove the 21kg growth.

Doctors initially believed she was suffering a gastric problem but had to act as the pain intensified over a six-month period. As the pain grew so did the size of her stomach, which left her looking pregnant as well as keeping her bed bound.

The student was forced to drop out of school due to the pain and swelling.

As Khalida, from Kashmir, India, became more secluded, rumours of her health began to circulate around her small village as locals began to believe she was pregnant or cursed.

Fearing the worst, Khalida’s parents travelled with their daughter to the nearest hospital in the area and begged medical staff to help them. See more photo below;
