A 20-year-old man, bedridden

since the past couple of years, will now be able to walk again

after undergoing surgery for the removal of a 25-kg swollen

mass that had been hanging from his thigh.

Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital (MYH) surgeon Sonia

Moses told PTI that a team of doctors removed the swollen mass

from the thigh of Bharat (20), a resident of Jhabua district,

after an operation that lasted for two hours Friday.

She said the lump started developing about two years

ago and it grew up to weight 25 kg, while the weight of the

man reduced to 30 kg.

This had made him difficult to walk and left him

bedridden, Moses said.

After the surgery, a portion of the swollen mass was

sent for autopsy to ascertain the reason behind its appearance

and growth, the doctor added.
