A tumour weighing almost six stone has been removed from a woman in the Czech Republic.

The growth, which weighed a staggering 5st 9lbs, had been growing inside the unidentified woman's stomach for years because she was too scared to visit a doctor.

Despite the 47-year-old's stomach swelling to almost 20 times its usual size, she didn't seek help until the tumour left her bedridden.

The woman underwent a life-saving operation to have the malignant tumour removed at Zlin Regional Hospital, in Zlin, last month.

It took surgeons more than seven hours to remove the growth which measured more than one metre in circumference.

They also needed to remove a further 4st 7lbs of surrounding tissue - leaving the woman more than 10 stone lighter.

During the operation she had to be given 20 blood transfusions.

Zdenek Adamik, head of the obstetrics and gynaecology department at the hospital, said doctors were baffled as to why the woman had not sought help earlier.

He said: ‘The patient weighed 117 kilos [18st 4lbs] before the operation and now she weighs 51 kilos [eight stone].

‘It is strange that the family and friends were unable to react to what was going on with the lady because just the weight of the tumour confined her to bed and she could not live a normal life.’

It is not yet known whether the woman will make a full recovery.

Doctors are continuing to monitor her condition following the operation.
