Odisha’s KIMS Hospital Doctors Successfully Remove Massive Chest Tumour

Bhubaneswar: In a significant medical achievement, a 25-year-old woman has successfully recovered from a massive chest tumour at Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS). The patient, who had been suffering from chest pain, shortness of breath, and a persistent cough for two years, underwent a challenging surgery recently to remove a tumour weighing approximately 4-4.5 kilograms.

This was one of the largest chest tumours ever extracted in that anatomical region. The patient’s post-operation recovery has been positive, according to a KIMS Hospital release.

Despite seeking medical help at numerous hospitals over two years, the patient’s condition remained undiagnosed and untreated. A collaborative effort between the oncology and cardiothoracic and vascular surgery (CTVS) departments at KIMS led to the discovery of the sizable tumour, which was exerting significant pressure on her heart and lungs.

The team of doctors that treated the patient comprised Dr Chandan Kumar Ray Mohapatra, Associate Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Dr Subrat Sahoo, Professor of General Surgery; Dr Jogomaya Pattnaik, Associate Professor of Medical Oncology; and the consultant cardiac anesthesiologists, Dr Ashok Badmali and Dr Gyanaranjan Mishra.

KIIT and KISS founder Dr Achyuta Samanta congratulated the doctors.
