Nguyen Duy Hai revealed that the tumor started to grow as soon as he was born and even though he underwent an amputation at his knee when he was 17 years of age.

The tumor has continued to grow and he is now three feet wide which means that he cannot do anything except just sit or lie down in one place.

Dr Vu Van Thach said that the tumor is non-cancerous since Duy Hai would have died if it was malignant and added that the tumor could be the cause of a genetic mutation.
