NGHE AN (VNS)— A team of doctors from the Nghe An Tumour Hospital succesfully removed a 12-kilo benign tumour from a 40-year-old woman in central Nghe An Province yesterday. The woman was first taken to the hospital in Dien Chau District on August 28.
The surgery took about seven hours to complete and the woman is now recovering under the supervision of doctors. The patient had suffered for 15 years because she did not previously have enough money to treat the disease. —VNS
