A man has lived with a hugely distended neck for years after he had a bad greeting to treatment.
Wang Zhixiang, 55, went to a alloy to get help with his cricked neck, caused by an damage at work as a labourer.
But instead of restorative the problem, things got a lot worse.
Doctors tried hormonotherapy – a use used in some cancer cases where the physique is pumped with hormones.
Wang thinks it was this which caused a bad reaction, with his neck starting to grow a tumour which done his neck some-more than double its strange size.
The occurrence happened in 2004 in Jilin City, Jilin Province, north-eastern China.
He undertook the hormone therapy but in 2005 after pang with the pain for months, but then his neck started to grow.
At first, it was mistaken for thyromegaly – an lengthened thyroid that swells when the metabolism in the physique is out of sync.
He went back to the doctor’s who after countless tests at the hospital in Changchun Hospital in Jilin Province diagnosed him with lipomyoma – a tumour – at the bottom of the neck.
But since Wang has no money, the illness can't be treated.
Doctors have told the unfortunate man he needs some-more than 100,000 RMB (£11,600) to have an operation, but his family can't means it.
It does not bluster him as the growth, a lipoma, is benign.
However, as it measures 30cm far-reaching it creates it unfit to live a normal life.
