70-Year-Old Nigerian Cured of Recurrent Thyroid Cancer by the Successful Resection of an Inoperable Malignant Tumor at Max Super Specialty Hospital

  • Battling with thyroid cancer for about 13 years, Nigerian patient, Aysha Mohammed was told by the doctors in her country that the malignant lump was inoperable. 
  • Initially the 70-year-old's thyroid gland was completely removed. But it recurred 5 years later.
  • In spite of a second treatment, she was diagnosed with a malignant lump again in 2012 which unfortunately could not be operated. 
  • On consulting Dr. Vivek Gupta of Max Super Specialty Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, she was told that the surgery is possible but incurred a lot of risks.
  • According to Dr. Gupta, the tumor resection surgery would lead to extensive bleeding leading to loss of blood suppy to the left side of the brain causing half paralysis.
  • Because of weakening windpipe due to continuous pressure exerted by the tumor, she would also suffer from a permanent tracheostomy.
  • Keeping a check on her bleeding, therefore, the tumor was successfully resected by Dr. Gupta and his team, irrespective of all the challenges.
  • Ms. Mohammed's condition is now stable and she is back in Nigeria.
