Can Tho doctors remove 11-kg tumor from man’s stomach

Doctors at the Can Tho General Hospital have succeeded in removing an 11-kilogram tumor from a 60-year-old man’s stomach.

Dr. La Van Phu, head of surgery, said May 21 that Thieu Thanh Xuan of Binh Minh Town -- in the nearby province of Vinh Long -- was brought in on May 13, fatigued and with a distended stomach.

A CT scan revealed the tumor that occupied his entire stomach.

Doctors performed a three-hour surgery on May 21 to remove it.

Xuan is now recovering.
