    The massive 55kg malignant tumour weighed close to 1.5 times the body weight of Gurmeet Singh and is the largest in the history of medical science

    Agony: Gurmeet Singh was left completely bedbound by the massive tumour
    A man left bedbound by a leg tumour that weighed more than he did will now be able to walk about thanks to groundbreaking surgery.

    The massive 55kg malignant tumour weighed close to 1.5 times the body weight of Gurmeet Singh, 26, and is the largest in the history of medical science.

    it was removed from his thigh after a four-hour surgery by the doctors of Max Super Speciality Hospital in New Delhi.

    Gurmeet, who weighs just 37 kg post-surgery, has lost his right leg and a portion of the pelvic bone.

    New hope: Gurmeet is pleased to be able to walk again
    But the young man, who was bed-ridden for four years, is glad he can now walk with the help of a walker.

    He said: "I was completely immobile and restricted to bed for four years. I was not even able to rest on my back and had stopped sitting two years ago as the weight of the tumour was too heavy. I could not even roll over or change sides because of it.

    "But now that I have got rid of it, I am extremely happy and cannot wait to stand, even though with a support."

    Gurmeet, who is currently recuperating in hospital, first felt inflammation in his right thigh in 2008.

    And three years ago, a biopsy report confirmed it was cancer. His family took him to several doctors in Punjab, his native state in northern India, but he did not receive proper treatment.

    He was then brought to Max Hospital for the surgery.

    Miracle: Doctors were amazed Gurmeet had managed to survive so long
    Dr Durgatosh Pandey, a senior consultant in surgical oncology at the hospital said: "It is nothing less than a miracle that despite having a malignant tumour for eight years, he is still alive. When he was brought to us, the tumour was extremely big and it was bleeding. There were ulcerations and infection.

    Transformed: The tumour has been steadily growing since 2008
    "Each step in the surgery was challenging and fraught with risks. To remove it completely, we had to amputate the entire right lower limb and along with that a part of the pelvic bone was also removed."

    "We were surprised to found the weight of the tumour had surpassed the body weight. It is probably the largest malignant tumour ever removed in the world."

    Gurmeet is now able to walk with the help of a stretcher and doctors are hoping that a magnetic prosthetic leg could be fixed soon.

    Just a guess that the medical system in India is not that great for the poor.
