A Thai man developed an enormous growth from his head that was twice the size of his skull.
Sutat Messati started to have pains in his head when he was just two years old, but little did he know it was the sign of a tumour.
It grew over the years, forcing him to carry it every time he left his house in a poverty-stricken Surin province of Thailand.
But now he has revealed his incredible transformation after the mass was removed by surgeons.
Kindhearted strangers donated more than £2,000 towards his operation, allowing him to live normally for the first time ever.
Sutat said: ‘I am very happy with the results, I can now live a normal life, thank you to everyone who helped me.
‘I plan to enjoy my life for the first time. I would like to get married and have children, I looked so hideous before that no woman would look at me without feeling sorry for me.’This comes after the story of an Indian man suffering form a genetic condition that caused hundreds of bubble-like tumours to appear on his body came to light.Shadot Hossain is believed to be suffering from neurofibromatosis – which cause non-cancerous lumps to crop up.
But he is in a race against time to secure surgery which will remove the tumours, saving his eyesight.
Without an operation to slice away the growths, the 47-year-old could permanently lose his vision.
While doctors reported another case of a 60-year-old woman’s brain tumour causing her to suddenly become obsessed about religion.
The unidentified patient was found to have an aggressive form of cancer after complaining of unusual symptoms.
Not only was she reporting signs of depression – typical with a brain tumour, but she believed she was in contact with the Virgin Mary, it is reported.
