On Monday, doctors eviscerated a tumour larger than a football from the ovary of a woman who is now in stable condition in a hospital in the northern state Haryana, a medical officer said.

The tumour, weighing 22 kilogrammes (48 pounds), was removed from Suresha Singh's ovary during a three-hour operation at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Rohtak, 70 kilometers (43 miles) from New Delhi.

Head doctor Savita Rani Singhal said the 45-year-old patient had been living with the non-cancerous tumour for six years because her husband had told her she would die if she had it operated on.

"It was made of solid tissue and was the largest I have come across in all the medical books or journals," Singhal told AFP.

"Suresha could not breathe or even walk properly because of the tumour. She had stopped stepping out of the house.

"But after the surgery she is eating well and should make a full recovery in a ten days," Singhal added.
