The medical arena witnessed a rare surgery, through the removal of a 13-kg tumor by medical staff at El-Bir Hospital in the province of Constantine “in the east of Algeria”.

And local media reported, quoting General Surgeon Smati Anis, as saying that the surgery was performed for a 57-year-old woman from Constantine.

The operation lasted 3 hours, during which the tumor weighing 13 kilograms was successfully removed, and the general surgeon pointed out that "we rarely encounter tumors of this size in the uterus." The patient, who underwent the resection, left the recovery room on Wednesday morning.

In a statement to Constantine Radio, she confirmed that she was not following any treatment before the operation, and she was not aware of the presence of the blood cyst inside her body, and she did not feel any pain.

The patient added, "I thought that swelling in the uterine area was due to excess weight and accumulated fat in the place, and I was playing with children at home and I felt great pain, and then I went to an internal doctor, who asked me to go directly to the hospital."
