Boob-shaped tumour grows on woman's back for 10yrs

A woman has grown a tumour the size of a bowling ball on her back for more than 10 years.
The 46-year-old woman arrived at a clinic in Dublin where medical experts examined the 19 x 17cm boob-shaped growth.
Dr Tunde Abdulsalam, who provided the case study for a British Medical report, carried out an MRI scan over fears it could be cancerous.
Dr Abdulsalam told MailOnline that it was the "largest he had ever seen" and most lipomas are much smaller at about 1cm in size.

The report said the woman was a "heavy-smoker, with a history of chronic obstructive airway disease". She is now on a waiting list to have the tumour removed, according to reports (s:mirrornews)
