A cystic tumor, weighing 6 kilograms, was removed

– The patient came for examination with complains for pain in the abdominal area. She reported, at the doctors in Prilep, where she was given a gastric therapy, but because the symptoms did not pass, she reported to a check-up in our clinic, which she knew, because I have previously done a surgery to her brother-in-law. Immediately on the examination it was noticed that she had a massive abdominal tumor – this is how Prim. D-r Hadzi-Manchev Mane, a specialist of general surgery in Zan Mitrev Clinic, started his explanation of the case, which we had in the last week, in our Clinic.

Seemingly without any serious indications, without a specific pain, but with minor and irregular difficulties, the 49-year-old patient from Prilep, has gone through all the doctors in her town, to only tell her, that she does not suffer from anything and that she has nothing unusual happening in her body. After her husband’s insisting, she came to a check-up in our clinic, when she was stricken by the shock of what our team of doctors, headed by d-r Hadzi-Manchev, had found.

– I had no serious pains, but I occasionally had some kind of pricking in the area of my diaphragm when bending. I am a tailor, but I also work in the agriculture without any problems. I have a great appetite, I do not have any stress and I live a normal life. I received no warnings from my family doctor, that something serious is happening to me, but after insisting of my husband, I have yet, came to a check-up in the clinical hospital “Zan Mitrev”. After the doctors’ examination, the shock had followed, for me and for my family. The finding, that in my body I had a tumor of about 5 kilograms, echoed in my ears, as a strong bang that literally pushed me into bed. I could not put myself together of what I have heard, but there was no time for panicking, self-pity, nor for any thinking of what should be done. The tumor was so large that it required an emergency surgery, which the doctors here, have conducted impeccably. I am still confused of what had actually happened to me, but I express my big gratitude to the entire team of the “Zan Mitrev” clinic, for saving my life – said our patient, who is after the surgery, visibly tired, but still very calm.

D-r Hadzi-Manchev completes the explanation how the entire procedure, from diagnosing of the condition, to the surgery, has been done.

– A computer check, was immediately made to the abdomen and it was found that a large cystic tumor was in question, most probably originating from the right ovary. Because the tumor was massive, a proposal was given to the patient for an immediate operation, due to the danger of an eventual burst of the cyst. Only two days after setting of the diagnosis, she entered the surgery hall and a removal of the tumor was done, together with the right ovary. The tissue being somewhere around 5-6 kg of weight, was sent to a pathochistological procedure. The specificity of this case, is that the tumor in the abdomen although she was examined in the home town, has not been recognized as existing in the patient, at all. The quick and effective diagnosis as well as the quick treatment, was a complete heat in the middle of the target, in this human life, for which we did not know, how it would end, if she would’ve not arrived to us. The patient is well, and is already on home treatment, gradually returning to her everyday activities – says Prim. D-r Hadzi-Manchev Mane, a specialist of general surgery, in the Zan Mitrev clinic.

Best wishes, for a full recovery are extended by the Zan Mitrev Clinic team.
