WOMAN HAD CYST AS BIG AS A 2-YEAR-OLD TODDLER
This story shows how important it is to get down to the doctors when sudden change happens. Someone told me of a man with a cyst as 'big as a rabbit' which was a strange metaphor for size but perhaps not its shape and now this 'as big as a two year old toddler'...
Shirley Pye looks like any proud mum-to-be as she poses with her giant bump.
But the bulge is not a baby - it's a CYST the size of a two-year-old child.
Shirley spent ten years thinking she was just putting on weight.
The mum of two threw herself into a brutal regime of crash-diets and hours of daily exercise - but nothing worked.
Her battle to stop herself ballooning finally reached crisis point when her waist swelled two inches in A DAY.
She called an emergency doctor who sent her straight to hospital, where medics found a foot-long ovarian cyst weighing 22lbs - the same as the average toddler.
