China’s Elephant Man has had a fourth operation to remove the world’s biggest facial tumour. Huang Chuncai from Hunan Province, China had a huge 25kg facial tumour that hung down to his waist. In a series of four life-saving operations Huang has had 21kg of the mammoth tumour removed – and can now lead a normal life. The 37-year-old has the worst case of Neurofibromatosis ever recorded and he could barely move, eat or sleep. The rare condition causes excessive sell growth and tumours that melted Huang’s face.
