A resident of Slovakia for about ten years was forced to hide in his house because of the huge neoplasm around his neck, whose weight reached almost six kilograms.
Slovak surgeons successfully performed a five-hour operation to remove a giant tumor on the neck of the father of two children, Stefan Soleik from Martin, Slovakia, who did not allow him to live normally for ten years.

“I'm really looking forward to returning to normal. I finally can again go for a beer with friends without people turning around and pointing a finger at me,” said Stefan after the bandages were removed after the operation.

When the family members of the man came to visit him, they were amazed at how good he looked.

Stephen's tumor was caused by a rare condition called Madelung disease. The disease leads to the growth of a fatty tumor around a person’s neck.

The former plumber rarely left his house due to the fact that people constantly paid attention to him. In addition, it was very difficult for him to move his head and look around.

“Gradually, my face began to swell. I had to spend many years at home,” he said in an interview with Mail Online. “When I appeared on the street, everyone turned around and looked at me. It was very unpleasant. The doctors wanted to do the surgery much earlier, but couldn't because of leg problems. "

The surgeon who performed the surgery to remove the tumor described it as very rare, adding that the tumor cannot be completely removed and can begin to grow again.
