Doctors Remove Tumor Bigger than Patient

When Jesus Rodriguez was born a benign lump under his armpit, his parents weren't overly concerned.

But when the lump began taking over the entire right side of his body, doctors in his home country of Mexico had to perform a tricky operation to remove it.

The tumor, which stretched from the toddler's armpit to his hip, weighed a whopping 33lb - more than 26lb Jesus himself.

Doctors at La Raza hospital, where the operation took place, say the 10-hour procedure went well and the tot is expected to make a full recovery.
