Medical science has been able to tackle several health conditions but the lack of awareness about them often comes in the way. Ignoring a seemingly harmless illness can leave people with drastic consequences.

64-year-old Zhao Xingfu first had a growth the size of an egg on his neck around 47-years-back but chose to ignore it. Left untreated for almost five decades, it became a massive tumour weighing 15 kg as Xingfu struggled to walk because of it.

 

Surgeons had to operate for 10 hours in order to remove the mass that Xingfu ignored as it was painless. He also didn’t seek medical help before since he wasn’t able to afford treatment.

The man returned home a week after the surgery and is expected to make full recovery soon.
