100KG+ 2-Metre-Long Tumour Devours Woman

gigantic-chinese-tumour-1.jpg

A woman with a gigantic tumour growing from her thigh, two metres long and weighing over a hundred kilos, is unable to move from her bed even as the tumour slowly rots and festers.

The woman (48) began feeling a pain in her left leg, which grew to become a gigantic sarcoma, now so large as to preclude movement and requiring her to eat several times her normal diet to fuel its inexorable growth.

Parts of the growth have hardened or festered, resulting in the variety of hues visible.

The tumour started growing early in her life, at around 17-18, and gradually grew, so much so that in 1983 she finally managed to have it amputated.

However, barely a year had passed before it returned, growing rapidly to the size of a fist. Seeing that it appeared to have stopped growing, and having little cash to pay medical expense, she simply ignored it.

All was quiet until three years ago, when it suddenly began growing again. Soon she could not rise from her bed, such was its grotesque bulk. The growth impeded circulation to her leg, and soon it began to fester.

According to her husband, she is small and frail, weighing only 35kg, yet she eats twice as much as her husband, all to nourish her thriving tumour.

She lacks even the money for a diagnosis however, so precise details are lacking. Donations from friends and family, along with the labours of her husband, are all that keep her fed.

With surgery estimated to cost at least $30,000, they have no chance of accumulating the funds. Using the Internet they have begun to accumulate some funds, but are a long way off an operation…

At over a hundred kilos the tumour may very well be the world’s largest, with previous gigantic growths apparently “only” managing 50kg or so.

Via Heaven.

Leaving severe medical problems to grow into catastrophic ones over decades seems to be a pastime peculiar to the Chinese of late. We have seen any number of similar cases, and even a few with (relatively) happy resolutions

    After seeing the "tree-man" and his companions, I'm not surprised.

    I pray she gets the medical attention she needs.

    And they call themselves "communists" ? How come they don't have a proper national health policy with cheap/free med care for all ? Instead of wasting billions of ¥ into moon exploration, they should reconsider their priorities. While some parts of China looks like ultramodern Tokyo or Seoul, the countryside is somehow no better than rural Africa. Such unspeakable cases sadden me.

    Get me a gun and a ticket to china and I'll do what has to be done. Forget the gun, I'll bring mine, just get me the ticket.

    Bad jokes aside, I really think putting her to "sleep" would be the most humanitarian solution. That woman has suffered enough.

    For once, I'd have to agree to this kind of solution for just *this* situation.

    We all saw how long it took for the woman from China to get the Yuan for HER treatment of the tumor inside her (it looked like she was pregnant, remember?). But I guess from a fiscal point of view, corners must be cut to keep the bottom line solid...

    ... the problem is, China (with nods at other 'pragmatic' nations' health care systems)sees her people as expendable resources.

    This is not your decision to make, thankfully. If the woman wants to live, she has the right to, especially, since there are medical procedures that could save her live.

    Milena of civilization, yet most animal species (even predatory ones) are still less savage than humanity. We humans are the only species that would kill for something, other than food and survival.

    Time to start doing something about these damned humans. Where did I put the flamethrower...

    Not rly.

    Monkeys declare war on each other, raid enemy habitats and slaugther babies, sometimes even attacking each other with sharpened sticks.

    Dolphins have been known to kill fish and other dolphins out of malice.

    Tigers and other big cats sometimes kill their own offspring to prevent them growing up and ousting their fathers.

    Et al.

    no funds to fix it? bullshit. just grab a saw and amputate that leg and put some salt on it afterward. then wrap it with some cloth to stop the bleeding. get creative people. and always, Mo' tussin.

    Long post flaming aside...

    I love how China's communist-socialist policies mean absolute shit when providing Medicare to its working poor. And by "love", I mean HATE, since it reeks of hypocracy and is an insult to my ethnic background.

    Seriously, don't get injured in China, because you need to pay upfront to get treated.

    The only reason I can think of as to why that woman is still alive and looking healthy is that, the tumor is benign. She wouldn't look that good if the tumor was 20-something years and malignant. ;) It would've devoured her on the inside out. That, or it's fake! XD

    because of false advertising? i come here for the moe goodness that is delivered 99.9% of the time. even though i don't HAVE to click through on guro shit, just being reminded of gross crap when you least expect it is jarring.

    Nowhere do we advertise the site as being a cotton swaddled delusional world of moe illustrations. And why aren't you complaining about all the grotesque stories of crime and depravity?

    it's your site, you don't have to defend or explain yourself. overall it's great and we're fortunate to have you.

    but the scope of the place has undeniably broadened since the site's inception (and i've been here since the first couple months). for better or for worse.

    you can't compare guro to stories about lecherous teachers or other depravity. only tightwads would seriously complain about that stuff. you only get resistance from people on guro stories because this kind of stuff is singularly, uniquely nasty and disturbing in a way which the other stuff can never be.

    standing behind guro content is a real commitment, that's all i'm saying. and if your numbers support this as an important component of the site, or you just love the shit for your own reasons, mazel tov. i still <3 sankaku.

    I try to respond to criticism.

    Grotesque and bizarre stories have always been popular, and were present from quite early on.

    "Sankaku Complex, which is intended to capture something of the relationship between anime, manga and games, as well as such media forms as eroge and the visual novel."

    You know, the japanese news are somewhat relevant, even those rape/schoolgirl abuse stories/arrests and stuff, but this is totally unrelated at all.
    This is just gross and totally unrelated to the site, unless someone has a fetish for this.

    They have consistently been some of the most popular stories on the site, so consider it a reflection of the interests of the readership.

    is it your intention to first develop a readership and then proceed to serve on them hand and foot (and freakish foot-tumor), giving them whatever it is they want no matter the topic?

    something tells me your readers also have interest in autos, weapons, papercraft/origami, trains, sexy beautiful women etc ... how soon until 3KC splits off splinter boards to serve that community as well?

    the site is great but with this attitude you run the risk of becoming another /b/, and i don't know that this is something you want.

    but hey man, it's your site ;)

    We always give the users what they want.

    You are new here? Or just not paying attention? We already have content on all the things you mention (not many trains though).

    Also you seem to be confusing this site with somewhere else - board? /b/?

    Artefact, being interested in rape stories is completely different from giant tumors. First time I dislike a post here, it doesn't even have anything to do with the site's purpose.
    Rape, sex-slave stuff, etc.

    This is crap, /b/ stuff.
    Just look: "Anything and everything can be a sexual fetish. NO EXCEPTIONS. A giant two meter long tumor is fine, too." Typical /b/ response.

    We get 3D pics of gigantic tumors but only 2D pics of orgies and prostitutes? No wonder so many people in here prefer 2D...

    Seriously though, that's a shame she can't get proper medical attention.
