Over 11 months, this 24-year-old woman from Mexico suffered due to an ovarian cyst that has been growing inside her at an alarming rate. The woman did not initially suspect that what she was going through was a serious matter. Although she noticed how fast she gained weight despite her diet, it was only later on that she found out that it was due to a cyst.

Because of the cyst's non-stop growth, she began experiencing problems with breathing, eating and walking. The cyst had a density of five stones that began crushing her internal organs and even putting her at the danger of heart failure.

The woman underwent surgery to have the huge cyst removed. According to news articles, the cyst's weight is almost the same as ten newborn babies.

According to the performing doctor, Dr. Erik Hanson Viana of Mexico's General Hospital, the cyst was the biggest cyst ever removed whole.

"This is the biggest cyst I have operated on, it was so large that it took up 95% of the patient's abdomen. It's really rare to operate on a cyst this big, it measured half a metre in diameter and the circumference was 157 cm," said the doctor.

"From all the research I've found, this is the largest ovarian cyst ever to be removed whole without draining it first or spilling it," he said. "The largest in history weighed 320lb back in 1902, and took several days to drain, I can't even imagine one that large."

"The patient was quite overweight, so after starting on a diet, she noticed her face, arms and legs were getting thinner but her stomach was getting bigger."

"When I met her, she could just about walk a couple of steps before getting agitated and feeling like she was struggling to breathe because the cyst was crushing her lungs."

The doctor added: "If we hadn't operated it would have gotten to the point where she wouldn't have been able to walk, would be severely malnourished and unable to eat. It's hard to say how long she would have lived, but it would have been a really bad quality of life."

"Two days after surgery she walked out of hospital. Before she was used to carrying 73 lb (33kg) inside her because of the cyst, so movement was like she was levitating or walking on the moon."

Fortunately, the operation was successful, and after six months, she regained mobility and is ready to return to her normal life.

"When we saw her six months after surgery to see how the scar was healing and monitor for other problems, she was fully healed. She was standing completely straight. She now walks like a normal person without needing a walking stick or other mobility aids and her abdomen are now flat."
