The pictures from SHOCKING show how a huge 60 kg tumor tumor engulfed the entire back of a retiree.

Desperately, Mr. Tang had asked several medics to help him.
However, he was repeatedly dismissed for his extremely complex condition, local media reported.

The 33-hour marathon operation began on April 1 and saw Drs. Yang and a team of medical professionals in Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital to carefully remove the crowd.
