Man Has To Live With Giant Lipoma On His Neck

One of the most serious cases of lipoma in years has recently came to public attention in a story published by The Sun. The tumor has a huge size. Actually, the massive tumor encircles the patient’s neck. And the most shocking thing about this story is that the man in cause has to live with this tumor, as he cannot afford paying for medical help.

Wang Zhixiang is suffering from lipoma, which is still a benign growth. The tumor is a soft lump formed below the skin. This lipoma is caused by an overgrowth of fat cells, as doctors claimed in Wang’s case. And that is not all. The tumor tends to spread around his body, affecting his back, legs, arms and stomach, too. Removing it as soon as possible is a must, but unfortunately Wang cannot afford to pay for the medical intervention.

Why has the huge size lipoma developed? According to Wang Zhixiang the tumor probably is a result of a hormone therapy he received back in 2005, after an accident he unfortunately suffered. As in most cases, lipomas are not harmful and do not tend to grow, no medical interventions are required. However, when lipomas tend to grow and become quite large, as the case for Wang Zhixiang, they need to be removed.

The growth is now 30 centimeters wide, but Wang Zhixiang, from Jilin city, Jilin province in China, must live with it. Even though the tumor is not cancerous, this is one of the most obvious cases in which lipoma has to be removed. As the tumor continues to grow, it will most likely affect Wang’s mobility, which already is quite limited. Living with such a tumor seems absolutely impossible and not only really shocking.

Hopefully, Wang Zhixiang will be able to raise the needed sum of money to have the medical intervention performed before new complications are developed.
