CẦN THƠ – Doctors at the Cần Thơ Maternity Hospital successfully removed a 3kg fibroid tumor from a woman, the hospital director has announced.

Nguyễn Hữu Dự said the doctors removed the tumor from the uterus of a 56-year-old woman in southern Vĩnh Long Province’s Trà Ôn District on October 19.

The patient had been hospitalised with intense abdominal pain.

After undergoing several tests, the doctors determined that the woman had a large uterine fibroid and should undergo surgery immediately.

Dr Huỳnh Thanh Liêm, who performed the surgery, said this was a severe case as the tumor was embedded deeply in the pelvis between the bladder and vagina, which posed dangers for the patient’s life.

The surgery was conducted successfully and the patient was recovering well, he said. -- VNS
