HÀ NỘI — K (Cancer) Hospital’s doctors have successfully removed a 3kg tumour, saving the life of a four-year-old boy -- one of the hospital’s most successful surgeries, so far.

The patient is Bá Minh Đức from Hải Bối Commune, Đông Anh District, Hà Nội. Some months ago, his parent found he had developed unusual health symptoms, such as various illnesses and loss of sensation in his feet.

After visiting several hospitals, doctors detected a huge tumour that was occupying most of his abdomen. Some hospitals refused to perform surgery on him because they felt he was too young to be put under anesthesia for so long.

On August 30, Đức was sent to K Hospital where doctors decided to remove his tumour to save his life. A 3kg tumor was removed from his abdomen following a six-hour surgery conducted by a team of doctors led by hospital deputy director Nguyễn Đại Bình.

“The surgery’s result is beyond our expectation. The doctors’ team saved his life,” Bình said.

Đức is currently under close supervision in the hospital’s ICU although his test results have returned normal.

Bình said Đức will still have to fight hard to overcome the disease and required huge support from doctors and the community in the future. — VNS
