Beer stomach? this man it was a 35-kilogram tumor!

There is its history.

the 47-year-old man from California still recovers after operation which he endured in July. Doctors removed a 35-kilogram tumor which it originally considered "the usual excess weight" from his stomach, BuzzFeed News writes. with

of Hector Hernandez from Downey, the State of California, friends for it often teased "a beer stomach" though he also did not drink some beer. "I just thought that I thick", - Hernandez told. Exercises, appear, did not change situation in any way. The stomach became firm to the touch, and hands became thinner.

After his family convinced it to see a doctor, Hernandez learned that his so-called "beer stomach" was not result of either beer, or excess weight, and actually is a huge cancer tumor.

Diagnosis? A retroperitoneal liposarkoma which is a rare form of cancer. Doctor William Tseng explained that liposarkoma can develop in any part of a body, but they meet in an abdominal cavity or extremities more often. The exact reason of their emergence is unknown.

of Tseng specializes in treatment of sarcoma therefore usually it deletes tumors in an abdominal cavity weighing from 9 to 14 kilograms each several weeks, but other doctors face it extremely seldom.

Nevertheless, a 35-kilogram liposarkoma of Hernandez was, certainly, "the biggest which he ever saw".

As it became such big? It is sometimes not so easy to notice this rare cancer, especially at early stages. "We definitely do not know how these tumors long develop, but we think that they grow slowly, for many years", - Tseng told. As the tumor begins in a back part of a stomach, it gradually displaces other bodies for a measure of its growth, and the patient's body generally "adapts" to it, he explained.

Thus, from the outside a stomach can just seem inflated or it is more, than usually.

Other symptoms, such as completeness or lock, it is possible to take for problems with digestive tract easily.

As soon as is diagnosed for the person a liposarkoma, the most widespread method of treatment is operation. Sometimes for destruction of cancer cells the chemotherapy is used.

After 6-hour operation during which Tseng had to move accurately near important bodies and large blood vessels in a stomach Hernandez's tumor was successfully removed.

Cancer did not extend to other bodies, but Tseng told that it had to remove one of Hernandez's kidneys which it could not separate from a tumor.

After 35-kilogram weight disappeared, Hernandez feels much easier and more vigorously.

Though it does not need chemotherapy, Hernandez needs to visit often the doctor and to do a computer tomography, Zeng noted.

Unfortunately, a liposarkoma often returns, and the patients similar to Hernandez have to be controlled carefully even after removal of a tumor. "Unfortunately, in such cases patients should do on some operations for all the life. We
