Doctors remove big

  • Doris Lewis of Atlanta didn't realize that she had a 27-pound tumor growing inside her abdomen. Reports suggest that the woman never ended up going to the hospital since she didn't have medical insurance and assumed that she was only gaining weight. 

    However, it appears that the tumor's removal was unavoidable at the time of her visit to the emergency room. "This thing was going to continue to grow," a doctor said to the media. "The good news for her was that even though it had grown a significant size, it had been doing this slowly."

    Lewis' friends mentioned that it was scary to her her sick and throwing up.
