Huang Chuncai “Elelphant Man” Undergoes Surgery to Remove Facial Tumors

China’s ‘tumour man’ undergoes more surgery to remove huge growths from his face – this time weighing 1.5kg.

Nicknamed “Elephant Man,” Huang Chuncai, from the Hunan province, was born with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis that affects the normal growth of neural cell tissue, the New York Daily News reported.

Huang Chuncai underwent surgery Christmas day to remove some of the unflattering tissue that covers his face.

According to the Mayo Clinic  neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in the nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue including the brain and spinal chord.  The tumors are usually benign and people with the condition often experience only mild symptoms. However possible effects of neurofibromatosis range from hearing loss, learning impairment, and heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) complications to severe disability due to nerve compression by tumors, loss of vision and severe pain.

Around 2007, Huang Chuncai caught the attention of the doctors at the Fuda Cancer Hospital in Guangzhou, who decided to try removing the tumor.

His first operation in July 2007 removed a 15 kg (33 lb.) tumor from the right side of his face, and the second one in January 2008 removed another 10 lb. (4.5kg) of tissue from the same side.

A third operation was scheduled for late 2008, which would have removed the tumor on the left side of his face. Doctors have not given up on helping Huang Chuncai, holding out hope that the facial tumor can be removed entirely.
