China’s Elephant Man Gets World’s Biggest Facial Tumor Removed (Disturbing Video)

A 37-year-old man from Hunan Province with a rare condition that causes massive cell growth is trying to lead a normal life after getting four operations over seven years.

Huang Chuncai had an extreme case of neurofibromatosis with a 55-pound tumor that hung down to his waist, and made it hard for him to eat, talk, move, or sleep.

It was left untreated for 30 years because his family was so poor, but surgeons at Fuda Cancer Hospital in Guangzhou agreed to help him after media publicized his story in 2007.

They managed to progressively remove 44 pounds of the growth over seven years, and now Huang finds it much easier to eat. He’s glad his appearance isn’t so shocking any more, and keen to earn a living.
