Saudi doctors removed 26 tumors from a local woman’s womb without affecting her ability to have babies, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.
The woman had hesitated for more than a year to undergo the operation because of fears she might not be able to have babies, ‘Sabq’ said.
It quoted obstetrics and gynaecology consultant at Sabya Hospital in South Saudi Arabia, Dr Nasser bin Mohsen Adawi, as saying the woman had suffered from severe pains before she was persuaded to have the surgery.
“We removed 26 tumors of different sizes from uterus. She feared she would not be able to have babies as she is married and has no babies, but the operation was successful and the womb remained intact,” he said.
